It's based around 4 motifs which come in one by one and are then repeated and combined. They are:
1. 'And the glory the glory of the Lord'
2. 'Shall be revealed'
3. 'And all flesh shall see it together'
4. 'For the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it'
This is what i have been taught... hope it helps
I would just say that the structure is an oratorio! At least it's musical analysis! :)
I would go with the 4 motifs, it is an oratorio, but that's not really it's structure.
Oratorio is more context than structure. The four motifs are the main point (:
Is it in sonata or ternary form?
@Georgia Its not either. Its made up of Racitative, Aria, Chorus
Whoops, sorry, thats the whole piece of the Messiah
