A Bit of Christmas Music
Posted On 12/16/2019 21:20:00 by yourchoice

Here I am again... having extra time on my 'puter this week. Music fills our home... and Christmas gives us special favorites. Today I was reminded of a tradition in my home many years ago. My parents and I sang in a church choir, and Christmas was the time to enjoy the annual concert of Handle's 'Messiah', performed in the city's best known concert hall. Because we had learned some of the music, we would take our choir book to the concert so that we could follow the words of the music. The special song, when the audience stood to their feet, was the Hallelujah Chorus. I have never tired of that song.

Today, a friend sent me the link to a very different rendition of the song, with the participation of Quinhagak Alaska 5th Graders. I just have to share that with my friends... I hope you enjoy it too!

Thanks, Allen, it is always great to hear from you. There is lots of music available this time of year, and I will be sharing more on my page and in Bulletins.

Stay busy, be happy, and enjoy some Christmas turkey (or whatever you prefer!), and all the while, be reminded Who got us started in celebrating Christmas.

As you I came from a musical family also.  Music was always the heart of our home and this song was at the top.  I have sang in different choirs and have had the opportunity to sing this, but never have I been afforded the opportunity to be so cute doing it, LOL.  Love this and thanks for sharing with us.
