G. F. Handel’s The Messiah is more properly an Easter pageant, telling of the life of Christ as foretold in scripture. That it is often performed at Christmas with its emphasis on the Hallelujah chorus announcing the birth of the Saviour can rob it of the power of the remaining score which heralds our own salvation as it did listeners in Handel’s time.  So we again performed selections from whole of The Messiah to the accompaniment of scripture and prayers in a service for singers and listeners both. Many brought friends, their scores, and themselves for a warm welcome from our fellowship.
