Hallelujah - La Jolla Symphony and Chorus

published 3 months ago by UCTV

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.
