<<Judas Maccabaeus>> composed in 1746 was his masterpiece, and <<Joshua>> composed in 1747 was also one of them. However, unlike <<Judas Maccabaeus>>, <<Joshua>> has a gorgeous scenes of love between young lovers, and "two miracle famous scenes" where creativity stands out. Aksa said, "Oh! Had I iubal's lyre" is also a popular aria since its premiere. In addition, ”See the Conquering Hero Comes!" which is familiar at award ceremonies is also a chorus song in this <<Joshua>>.
