Messiah's musical breadth and engaging religious subject matter remind us of transcendent spiritual values that have long informed and guided so many. Noted historian Paul Henry Lang writes,

Messiah is perhaps the only major work about which public sentiment is unanimous. Its freshness, its warmth, its beautifully-rounded forms and sculpted melodies, offer universal experience to people of all walks of life and shades of faith. Handel achieved with his work the most wide-spread critical recognition ever accorded a composer, for among his acclaimers are not only every English-speaking church congregation, small or large, but also Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms, and every musician who ever tried his hand at choral writing.
