Joy

I  have gotten out my Christmas CDs for the season.  My favorite?   Handel’s Messiah.  One of my great joys of my life has been to sing in the chorus numbers of this magnificent work.  I had the privilege of singing in community choirs twice over the years (1982 and 1998).

I am just awed by the fact that Handel composed this incredible score in 24 days and set it to the words of Scripture heralding Christ’s birth.

By the way, I sing those high soprano parts.  I should confess,  however, that I don’t read music.   Not a note.  Quite a feat, don’t you think???

Of course, I love the Hallelujah Chorus, but another favorite is “For Unto Us a Child is Born“.  Enjoy>> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oP-KyP4bvWk
