25 Days of Christmas Quotes: Day 21

One of my favorite religious musical pieces is the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah. (it’s fun to sing in choir, too!) I love the piece even more when I hear it around Christmas time. Through its powerful text and music, it proclaims that Christ is indeed the triumphant Messiah.

Hallelujah!

For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

The kingdom of this world
Is become the kingdom of our Lord,
And of His Christ, and of His Christ;
And He shall reign for ever and ever,
For ever and ever, forever and ever,

You can find the full text to the chorus here.

And here is the best part: a video of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Orchestra at Temple Square performing the Hallelujah Chorus.
