Messiah goes online

We are busy digitising some of the British Library's most important music manuscripts, and plan to make these freely available online over the coming months via our Digitised Manuscripts system.

Today we have uploaded one of the most famous of the Library's music manuscripts: Handel's Messiah.  You can now leaf through the complete manuscript and zoom in to see tiny details.

Although excerpts from the manuscript have previously been available in the British Library's Online Gallery, this is the first time that the complete manuscript has been made available on the web.
