Handel’s MESSIAH (Parts 2 & 3)

Handel’s MESSIAH (Parts 2 & 3)

GCA 043 March 15, 2018 | 7.30 PM Season: 11 First Baptist Church of Griffin


Handel’s oratorio Messiah stands as a pillar of the choral-orchestral repertoire.  We present the second and third parts which illuminate the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ and also point to the second coming and the vision of the Lamb of God seated on the eternal throne.  Expressive recitatives, dramatic airs, remarkable choruses–including the brilliant “Hallelujah”– radiate the splendor of the one who reigns forever and ever.
