Phoebe asked for this one, and indeed it just wouldn’t seem right to have Christmas without the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah. And let’s go first-class, with the Royal Choral Society at the Albert Hall.
And how they manage to put all these elements together into a flawless work of art… well, I can only stand in awe.
Who wants to let Christmas or Easter go by without the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s The Messiah?
Requested by TheWhiteRabbit, here’s the Royal Choral Society and Hallelujah.
We usually hear this around Christmas-time and Easter, but Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords all 365 days of the year. Any time’s a good time for The Hallelujah Chorus, from G.F. Handel’s The Messiah: performed by the Royal Choral Society.
I saved this special for Christmas morning–The Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah, sung by the Royal Choral Society at the Royal Albert Hall. This was a Good Friday performance in 2012; but if you can think of a better occasion for The Hallelujah Chorus than Christmas Day itself–well, tally-ho.
Anyway, from me to you…
Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus, here performed by the Royal Choral Society, is about the best way I know of proclaiming the glory of Our Lord Jesus Christ and His sovereign right to the lordship of heaven and earth. We long for that day when He shall set His throne upon the mountains of the earth, and reign with judgment and with justice, with goodness and with mercy, forever. “The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” –Isaiah 9:7
I’ve been saving this up for Christmas morning–the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s The Messiah, performed by the Royal Choral Society at the Royal Albert Hall, on Good Friday of 2012.
Merry Christmas, everyone.
The Lord omnipotent reigneth!
This is the hymn that I had to hear today, after my daily Bible reading landed me in Job, Jeremiah, and Revelation in succession (I’ll say more about that in the next post)–the immortal Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s The Messiah, performed by the Royal Choral Society. You might want to turn up the volume for this one!
Really, if this can’t crank you over, your soul needs a new battery.
