At Christmas – They Sing Hallelujah

Merry Christmas

It’s Christmas Day and on this day people around the world will celebrate in many different ways but almost everywhere Christmas is celebrated there will be music. Each culture has its own unique music and traditions, some religious, some secular but the spirit of Christmas remains the same wherever it is celebrated.

Of all of the music sung to celebrate Christmas, perhaps no piece is as universal as the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah. It is sung in countries around the world by choirs and small groups in a variety of styles and languages that make each distinct and yet at the same time connects us to this great celebration of the birth of a child and the promise this day brings to the world.

Rather  than write a Christmas Day post, I thought to share some of the joy expressed by people from different parts of the world as they celebrate Christmas singing Hallelujah.
