Baroque composer George Frideric Handel easily ranks among the world's greatest composers. The first edition of this research guide on Handel appeared in 1988; since that time a great deal of scholarly work has been published on Handel and related areas, including the discovery of a hitherto unknown work. New general resources such as the "New Grove Dictionary of Opera" (1992), electronic resources such as the "RISM" libretto catalogue online, and the study of Handel's continuing popularity as evidenced by the new Handel House Museum in London and Handel practice around the world (e.g., "Messiah "and millennium celebrations in Tonga, singalong "Messiahs "etc.) are incorporated into this revised edition of the Handel guide.
