Check out this 1902 copy of the score, isn't it lovely? My seat partner owned this book.
Each year, we have dreamed of getting to sing along with Handel's Messiah. For this reason or that conflict, it just hasn't happened. Until 2008! When a flyer appeared that the local First Presbyterian Church was hosting the production on Sunday, December 14, we knew we could no longer make any excuses...the time had come!
It was fabulous. Inspiring. Wonderful. (Even though those high notes for sopranos are really high. Wes sang bass due to the high notes for tenors, too.)
Lord of Lords
The Everlasting Father
The Prince of Peace
May this message be a song in your heart as well during this Christmas season!
