Moving best I have seen and live recorded too!
I had the fortune of being surrounded by this incredible music when my school put on a performance of the Messiah one year.
Sadly, because of the religious content of the lyrics, I made the decision not to take part in the singing even though my teachers insisted I attended every rehearsal and the final performance.
I remember my heart swelling as the wonderful sound filled the great hall around me and I wished I could have been part of that collective voice.
I went to hear it in Lichfield cathedral soon after leaving the Borg. The words meant a lot to me at the time. I do prefer to listen to classical music now when I'm at home or in the car, I got fed up with pop music.
well, this music is nothing compared with the holy spirit inspired kingdom songs!!!
seriously, thank you for this wonderful video! haendel was really one of the greatest composer who ever lived!
