Easter Sunday and a Tuesday Tune: Handel's Hallelujah Chorus

Today, Easter Sunday, our little family went for a walk around the neighborhood to try and burn some calories after a magnificent lunch at my Mum and Dad's house.

We talked, told jokes and I naturally took lots of photos!

Even though we are approaching winter here in Australia the gardens are still looking colourful, beautiful and very Summery.

As the sun began to set we saw an amazing sight...the sun's rays were shining through the clouds.

The whole family was awestruck by the beautiful sky and we even thought that the cloud on the right looked like the hand of God....

Imagine seeing all of this beauty and splendour in one day....


Easter Sunday! 


Instead of having an "Aha moment" we had an "Alleluia moment!"


Which brings me to my Tuesday Tune.

Mya from the lovely blog "Elbows on my Window Sill" reminded me of the beautiful Hallelujah chorus from Handel's Messiah in her Easter post this week.


Messiah is divided into three parts covering the prophecies concerning the birth, miracles, crucifixion, resurrection and ascension of Jesus. It was first performed during Lent in 1742 and today it is performed at Christmas and at Eastertide with selections containing resurrection themes being included in Easter services.


I hope that you enjoy Andre Rieu's rendition of  Handel's Hallelujah Chorus which was performed at the Radio City Music Hall in New York with the Harlem Gospel Choir and Tenors and Sopranos from his own group of performers. 





So, on this Easter Sunday 2010, may I wish you and your loved ones a very Happy and Blessed Easter and may all of your days be filled with many Alleluia moments!
