Handel's MESSIAH - Part I

The centerpiece of our December 5 concert will be Part I of Handel's Messiah. We will perform a slightly abridged version to correspond to the portions we will perform at the Kennedy Center on December 23. In addition to recitatives and arias sung by soloists, we will perform four choruses from Part I plus the Hallelujah Chorus from Part II.

Since by man came death (Part III)

Worthy is the Lamb; Amen (Part III)
