OK, so after having attended a performance of the famous Christmas oratorio, Handel's Messiah, this Sunday, I have to say, I am kind of really almost totally obsessed. The songs have been playing out in my head for four days running.

It's really amazing, I'm not going to lie. I'm sure you've heard the Hallelujah chorus before (usually right when a flash of inspiration or good luck strikes the hero of a movie or TV show), but the entirety of the piece is pure brilliance and simply staggering. Give it a listen, really. It will put you in the Christmas mood, if you have a soul at all.

Just kidding about the soul part. But seriously…

My favorite has to be Every Valley Shall be Exalted tenor solo. Wow. Awesome. Have a listen.

Handel, you talented devil.
