Choirs and the Hallelujah Chorus

It's the season and to me it's not complete without the Hallelujah Chorus. The other thing is majestic choirs move me. Here are two videos by the Brooklyn Tabernacle and the Mormon Tabernacle Choirs. I love both versions of what probably is the most famous part of Handel's Messiah.I get gooseflesh on "King of kings! ... Lord of lords ...."

Happy holidays, everyone!

Walter Cronkite conducts. Choir begins singing around four minutes into the video. Introductory speeches are covered on the first four. They are as beautiful to watch as the rendition.

If you ever need verses for grief and comfort, just ask me anytime. I pray & hope you won't's a tough place to be, and so thankful God is with me...Emmanuel!

Merry Christmas Hazel. There's nothing like the Hallelujah Chorus. I want to stand to my feet whenever I hear it.

Blessings to you,
