Georg Frederick Handel - Messiah: Hallelujah Chorus

Not my favorite bit from that piece, but appropriate for the day.   It's been quite some time since I've been to a Handel Sing-a-long and likely can no longer sing the baritone part from memory.  But that's OK - in packing up Camp Borepatch I found my score.  The next time I have I have an opportunity, I shall be prepared.

Comments say it was performed too fast. I don't know, it seemed fine to me. What talent -- what voices! Wow.

Merry Christmas to you BP and the new bride as well as the rest of the crew!

( I think it was 58° here in NH yesterday. A downright tropical Christmas.)

Yes, it was performed too fast.

It's like ... the Readers' Digest Condensed Version of the Hallelujah Chorus.

Still good, but not quite "excellent".
