It’s Easter Sunday. That means a day of rejoicing for Christians, as we celebrate the central event of our faith.
How better to do that than with the great choruses, “Worthy is the Lamb” and “Amen”, which conclude Handel‘s oratorio “Messiah“? These performances are from my favorite recording of the piece, by Colin Davis and the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, with some truly magnificent solo performances by the lead singers. (The entire performance is also available on YouTube.)
