Christmas Countdown 4: remain seated...

This has been doing the rounds and what is Christmas without a little bit of the Messiah (even though technically it was written for Lent/Easter). And this is arguably the most famous bit, although not my favourite part. Anyway, this even gave me a few goosebumps on first watch (thanks Murray on FB) so I'm sharing with you on a very rainy Saturday in Bundaberg.

Oh...and I believe it was one of the King Georges who began the slightly weird tradition of standing during the Hallelujah chorus. You may remain seated at computer throughout if you wish.

Lovely, I think I was in the angel choir in the Messiah, when I was at school. We sang in the wings at the town hall. Waaay in the distant past I have a vague memory!!
