Tochter Zion; also known as See the Conquering Hero Comes; is the most famous chorus from the oratorio Judas Maccabaeus by the composer George Frideric Handel (1685-1759); who was born as a German and died an Englishman. He composed Judas Maccabaeus in 1746. The heroic epic based on the Biblical story about commander-in-chief Judas Maccabaeus; was used by Handel to celebrate the English victory over the rebellious Scottish. The first performance of this patriotic work – written in the pleasing; rich baroque style that Handel's music is known for – was conducted by himself; the success was huge. The chorus “See the Conquering Hero Comes” was added later; in 1748; drawn from another oratorio (Joshua).
