Merry Christmas with the Messiah!


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

 

I wish all of you a great Christmas break, whether you celebrate it or any other festivity of your faith.

 

But whatever religion may be yours, the Messiah is worth listening to! Merry Christmas With 3x the Messiah! | musicophilesblog – From Keith Jarrett to Johannes Brahms

 

All the best!

I wish there were an equivalent to the Messiah for Festivus!

I'm personally not religious, Christmas is more a tradition than anything else for me. That said, I very much appreciate the profound impact religious music can have.

Agreed, the Messiah is tied to Christmas for me also. I learned it listening to the wonderful Colin Davis recording on Philips vinyl from the '60's. Listening to the Hallelujia Chorus, I always thought the words were "drops of innocence raineth" not "Lord God omnipotent reigneth."

Those attending Festivus may also participate in the "Airing of Grievances" which is an opportunity to tell others how they have disappointed you in the past year,

 

A most excellent tradition.

Dunedin Consort Messiah is just fantastic. I make sure that I listen to Messiah at least twice a year. The music is just too good to only listen at Christmas.

Musicophile, apologies for taking the thread OT. Of the three Messiahs you mention in your blog post, the Dunedin is my favorite. What I really like is the tradition in the US (and elsewhere?) of amateur choruses performing the piece. Everyone, performers as well as audience, seems to have a great time.
