The Project: 'The Triumph of Time and Truth'
'The Triumph of Time and Truth' represents a culturally and politically relevant work of European significance.
Dr. Hans-Dietrich Genscher, 1991.
Suitable for the general reader, 'The Triumph of Time and Truth' deals with Handel's life, work and heritage. It consists of 26 parts and contains inter alia 162 foot-notes, period texts, music examples, the family tree, a selection from Handel's correspondence, anecdotes, chronological surveys, index of personal names, bibliography, and summaries in English, German and French.
The 326 pages of text are supplemented by 210 black-and-white illustrations which rank among the largest sets of their kind in the world. The photographic material was provided by 45 organizations and private owners. Many of the pictures are unique even on an international scale. Detailed information on the illustrations is given by commentaries included in the text.
