Hallelujah!!!!!!

One of our FAVE composers (no offense, Bach) has done it again!!!

This time, his amazeballs “Messiah" is rocking churches all over the world. George Frederic Handel composed the masterpiece with the help of his BFF, Charles Jennens, who compiled scriptural text from the Book of Common Prayer and the King James Bible. The text follows the Messiah from his days as a prophet to his eventual resurrection and glorification in Heaven.

Omg, it’s like a musical version of the Bible. GENIUS!
