George Frederick Handel was a German-British Baroque composer well known for his operas, oratorios, anthems, concerti grossi, and organ concertos. He was strongly influenced both by the middle-German polyphonic choral tradition and by composers of the Italian Baroque. He is consistently recognized as one of the greatest composers of his age. Messiah, Water Music, and Music for the Royal Fireworks remain steadfastly popular. One of his four coronation anthems, Zadok the Priest, has been performed at every British coronation since 1727. He died a respected and rich man, and was given a state funeral at Westminster Abbey.
