Events[edit]

  • Johann Sebastian Bach examines the organ at the Johanniskirche, Leipzig
  • March 23 – English premiere of Handel's Messiah in London
  • 1743–1746 Bach revises his St Matthew Passion (two organs used again, but Viola da gamba still retained; Recitatives revised so that now only the vox Christi recitatives have sustained Continuo parts). No evidence of version being performed (version we know today).
