Air: He Was Despised and Rejected: from Handel’s Messiah

1-21 Part Two_ No. 23 Air, He Was Despised and Rejected (Handel) 1

THE AMBROSIAN SINGERS

Conductor: Claudio Scimone

I Solisti Veneti

The same text is used in GW’s sermon.  The Messiah was performed at the Founding Hospital in London in 1754.  I wonder if GW knew it? The sermon is first dated 1758.
