During this special time of the year, my favorite Christmas performance is to attend a presentation of the Hallelujah Chorus. This musical tributeÂ is part of the Messiah, an oratorio composed by George Frideric Handel, and is one of the most popular works in the Western choral literature. The most famous movement is the “Hallelujah” chorus, which concludes the second of the three parts. The text is drawn from three passages in the New Testament book of Revelation.Â You can see quite an original version performed at a food court last year.Â It’s well worth seeing, especially the crowd’s reaction,.Â Take a look below.
