“Thou Art Gone Up On High” is an Aria from Handel’s famous oratorio ‘Messiah’.

This version is from the Oxford Edition, 36(c), First Soprano Solo in D minor.

Pentecost is referred to rather indirectly, without naming the Holy Spirit. “Thou art gone up on high” from Psalm 68 (Psalms 68:18) reflects “gifts for men” and “that God might dwell among them”. Originally written for bass, Handel rewrote the Air in London in 1750 for the castrato Gaetano Guadagni.

Messiah (HWV 56), the English-language oratorio composed by George Frideric Handel in 1741, is structured in three parts. Part I begins with the prophecy of the Messiah and his birth, shows the annunciation to the shepherds and reflects the Messiah’s deeds on earth. Part II covers the Passion in nine movements. This part is concluded by a scene called “God’s Triumph” that culminates in the Hallelujah Chorus. Part III of the oratorio concentrates on Paul’s teaching of the resurrection of the dead and Christ’s glorification in heaven.
