HE SHALL REIGN



Christmas celebration has begun all over the world. Two years ago, I found this incredible production of the Hallelujah Chorus. It was done in a shopping mall in Canada and just I had to post it for you to see. It's still very moving to me!

I am quite certain that this was not a spontaneous event. I believe it was a beautifully staged happening. The choir is incredible! Far too good for luck. It is however a very interesting production by those posing as just sitting around in a food court. I do believe that there are several that join in the singing of portions of the chorus that are not part of the choir.

What incredible glory and praise to hear in their voices! I would have joined in if I had been there ... but I probably would have had tears running down my face.

YES!
... KING of KINGS and LORD of LORDS!
... AND HE SHALL REIGN FOREVER and EVER and EVER!
HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH!

That day IS coming!

These are called Random Acts of Culture, and it was started by an opera company that was trying to interest the people in their city in going to the opera.

I heard this earlier in the season and just hoped to see it happen in person.

Beautiful is the human voice that sings God's praise

Thank you for sharing. I cry every time I hear this song. Handel gives credit to God for this beautiful music. According to one source Handel said, "God has visited me."

It seems to me something like this is MEANT to be shared in the public places, with everyone, Shared. Man oh man. Glad to know I'm not the only one you shared this with that burst into tears at the beauty and joy of it.

For those interested that was the 80 strong Chorus Niagara at the Seaway Mall in Welland Ontario. Us Canadians are a wild and crazy bunch eh. A truly uplifting bit of video in my opinion.
