Description:
The air was a musical form that appeared in the 16th century, in the English Royal court. Originally for solo lute, they later consisted of songs with vocals in one to three parts, accompanied by the lute. John Dowland's First Booke of Songs or Ayres, first published in 1597, was particularly influential. Handel's Messiah oratorio, includes this example of an air, "He was despised", to communicate a pitiful description of Christ. The music is full of dynamic contrast, and the tempo is marked as Largo.
