[Ridgewood, NJ: Gregg Press Incorporated. 1965.]  Blue hardcover with gilt titling to spine, no jacket as issued. 267pp. Reprint of the German Handel Society, 1884 Leipzig edition. Fine condition, nearly as-new. We obtained this book directly form the publisher over fifty years ago, it has never been privately owned. "The present work was called the Occasional Oratorio because its creation and performance were occasioned by peculiar passing circumstances." First performed February of 1746.  "The first two parts are original compositions throughout...the words to these parts are almost entirely taken from Milton's psalms...the third part is half filled with several important pieces from 'Israel in Egypt'."
