Handel's Messiah

Today was an awesome day! I went to Southern Adventist University to hear Handel's Messiah! --with full orchestra, a big chorus, and excellent soloists! There was a huge crowd. I guess there are a lot of us that like 'real music' and not the 7-11 stuff (7 words 11 times in unison) that is in 'churches' these days. Sure wish you could have been there! You would have loved it. It was one of those performances that made you pull the kleenex out of your pocket. "The Trumpet shall Sound" was outstanding. I have always loved the trumpet solo in that! And, they even did the very difficult "Amen" at the end! So, allllllll that to say, this was a wonderful way to continue the observance of the Passover season and the Spring Feasts!
