Handel's Messiah (Christmas) - *amended*

It begins with one. It ends with all. Music renders all speechless, save those who are singing. Believer or skeptic, Christian or non-Christian, male and female, adults and kids, regardless of all differences, will pause to acknowledge the majesty and beauty of what the music is pointing one toward. Handel's Messiah captures all. One cannot help but declares that the LORD is King of kings, and Lord of lords.At the end, it does not matter whether one believes or not. God when He appears in all His Glory, will render all creation speechless. Every knee and every tongue will then confess that Jesus is Lord. The only response: Sing.

Here are two notable videos I have come across where flash choirs surprised everyone. The first is in downtown Vancouver at Pacific Center Food Court, which has appeared in the local news

 Here are three videos. The first is in Welland, Ontario, which has gone viral on the Internet. The second is in Philadelphia, and the THIRD one is the one at Pacific Centre, Vancouver.

1) AT WELLAND, ONTARIO



The second is at Macy's in Philadelphia, on October 30th 2010. I think this version is a little more majestic.

2) MACY'S IN PHILADELPHIA, (Oct 30th, 2010)




3) AT PACIFIC MALL, VANCOUVER (Dec 4th, 2010)
Here is the actual footage of the Vancouver performance. While it is not as well filmed compared to the first one, it is still quite notable.





Interestingly, ChristianAudio.com has released a free audio book for this month of December. It is about the story of Handel's Messiah. Coincidence? I think not.
