Which of the above is your favorite oratorio? My favorite is Haydn's The Creation, followed by CPE Bach's Die Israeliten in der Wüste. Both are testimonies to the lasting religious faith of the composers. For their perfection of form, beauty of invention, and superb storytelling, I hold them in a special place in my heart. Don't get me wrong, though, I love all of Handel's oratorios too. His choral writing is very beautiful.

Mine is also Creation by Haydn. I love it soo much. It's the greatest work of Haydn I believe.

The Seasons isn't bad, either. It's a very mature masterpiece from the aging genius Wink. I have always found it so powerfully affecting. Also, Haydn's early oratorio The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross is very touching and powerful, almost baroque in its aesthetic conception of the lament and lamentation Sad. I love both.

I haven't heard any of the ortarios listed above. Maybe I should listen to more choral music.

You haven't even heard The Messiah or The Creation Confused. What a shame! Sad

I haven't heard any either! I should listen to the Haydn, I was going to. Whats the difference between Oratorio and other choral works like Requim and Mass?

BTW, I've listened to Bach's Mass in Bm and Requim and Brahms Deustche Requim, and those are my favorite choral musics. Very powerful and emotional. Mozart's probably my favorite.

Hey!
I would suggest to those further interested in oratorio to listen to Berlioz's oratorio L'enfance du Christ, which, although I have many reservations about Berlioz, I find especially poignant and well written in most respects.

Yeah I should listen to more choral music, but it seems I am concentrating more on piano and orchestral music at this moment. I only heard a few famous excerpts from the Messiah of Handel.

I'll try to. Though I haven't heard the Haydn or any other masses before!
