George Frideric Handel Messiah
The holiday season would not be complete without Handel’s masterful Messiah, conducted by David Felberg and sung by the CUMC Chancel Choir. Written in Dublin, when the composer was considered all but washed up in his native England, Handel finally embraced the new English tradition of the oratorio, and thrived. Upon completion of the famous “Hallelujah” Chorus, he ran downstairs and exclaimed to a servant, “I think I did see Heaven before me and the great God Himself!” Come be a part of the holiday magic!
