An all time favorite...very near and dear to me...my Mom taught me my love of classical music and the appreciation of the beauty of the "great voices" of all time.
Feel your spirit soar with this one.

We attended a German version of Handel's Messiah - it is one of the most beautiful pieces of music written and makes my Christmas. I am so familiar now that I like all of the songs and not just the Hallelujah Chorus---was a bit different in Deutsch, though ;-)
