Handel starves to compose Messiah
(Excerpt taken from Color the Christmas Classics Book)

He wrote Messiah in 24 days! This was no minor effort! Handel hardly ate for three weeks while he worked on this piece. His servant brought his breakfast every morning and picked up the untouched breakfast dishes when he dropped off the supper tray…When he had finished he came out of his room declaring "I did think I saw all of heaven open before me…and the great God himself".
