Holy Melismas Batman!!!

Well I have all of my rep for next semester... Plunking through them is intense.  I have three Handel pieces (BTW I Freaking LOVE Handel) and they are melisma heavy to say the least.  The first is Si spetata, il tuo Rigore from Giulio Cesare and it looks to be a blast.  Lots of fun diatonic melismas.  The other two are from the Messiah and are Thus Saith the Lord, and But Who May Abide.  Very challenging pieces with more chromatic melismas.  I'm just so excited to learn these and knock them out of the park next year! I can't wait!
