Music Monday--Christmas--Handel's Messiah

Today's Music Monday is a real treat--the entire Handle's Messiah. I have been told by an online friend that this version is closest to the way Handle's audience would have heard it in his day with the tenor flourishes. Also, this is the entire score, with no pieces left out. Remember, we are still celebrating the birth of Our Lord!

I've sang parts of The Messiah and really love it.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
