the trail of a family becoming

Handel’s Messiah

My favorite remains ASMF’s 1992 live recording, conducted by Sir Neville Marriner. But since that’s not available online, I tried to find my second choice — the Choir of King’s College and the Brandenburg Consort’s 1993 live recording, under Stephen Cleobury. But unfortunately, neither was that available in full version. So on this Christmas Eve, I settled with Cleobury’s 2009 instead:

And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:10-11, ESV)

Merry Christmas to you all.
