Hallelujah - La Jolla Symphony & Chorus

12/19/2018; 4 minutes

Since its premiere in Dublin in 1742 Handel's oratorio "Messiah" has become one of Western music's best-loved and most-performed choral works. Originally part of the oratorio's third section, which celebrates Christ's resurrection, the "Hallelujah" chorus has become a perennial Christmas staple, and arguably the best-known choral work in the repertoire. Recorded on 12/09/2018. (#34361)
