Few pieces of music are more closely associated with Christmas than Handel’s Messiah. People of all ages are thrilled by this musical crown jewel and what heart doesn’t beat faster to hear, “And He shall reign forever and ever…” during the Alleluia Chorus?
At the end of the original manuscript for the Messiah, Handel wrote the letters “SDG”—Soli Deo Gloria, “To God alone the glory”. God, indeed, has inspired a work of great beauty in this masterpiece. Now you can enjoy it whenever you wish thoughout the holiday with this high quality DVD.
