I know it’s not Christmas and Christmas is when people think of Handel’s Messiah. I like to be different, I guess. I was just recalling going to hear Handel’s Messiah in December for the first time in I can’t remember how long, but possibly 20 years. I guess time flies when you’re having fun.
The Hallelujah Chorus is the one that gets the most the attention, and this choir we heard really nailed it, but I have a few bits that I enjoy more. For example, if I was a tenor, comfort Ye My People is bit I would want to sing. In fact, truth be told, when we play the CD in the house, I sort of belt this one out really loudly, don’t tell anyone.
