I have never heard Handel’s Messiah in its entirety live before… until last night…
when younger daughter (thank you Becca) treated mom and I to said performance… IN THE NATIONAL CATHEDRAL!!
it was simply inspiring… to hear the words of Scripture put to such phenomenal music… I was so pleased especially because the printed program had the words so that, if we chose (I did), we could read along as the words were sung… at one point I thanked God for the worship experience…
You have made such a thing as us;
Who, even in a fallen state
Can still make marble shine,
Columns rise, roofs cover,
Instruments sing and
to Your great glory;
For it is only You who
Can be truly glorified.
To God be the glory, Amen.
