Sunday morning music

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.)

Amen indeed!

Happy Easter, everyone!

Be not afraid, for HE has risen, and will be with us always.

Thank you, Peter. The Lord is risen indeed. May the Peace of God be with you now and always. What a wonderful God we have who allows us to call him Father rather than master. What a wonderful God I have who treats me as a son rather than a slave.
