Handel’s MESSIAH

Image

Listening (radio) to Handel and Haydn Society perform Messiah at Symphony Hall. My mother always took (ok, at first, dragged) me to an annual performance, until I finally caught on. Blessings for her persistence.

I have only a faint memory of my grandmother, Geraldine Hazard Brisbane, who studied voice and organ at the NEC, singing “I Know That My Redeemer Liveth” with a Worcester, MA, chorus performance — not H&H.

So, even listening at home, do you feel the urge to stand for the HC?
