Handel's Messiah

A very uniquely beautiful performance of the complete, Handel's Messiah-from Barcelona, Spain. 

Though this marvelous composition, is not, directly, an Orthodox Christian religious or cultural expression, yet for the Baroque era in the West,  to my mind, this great & inspired work, is
very scripturally  and Christ centered and spiritually uplifting, and worth our appreciation.

This great work, is at about the highest spiritual level possible, in western Christian expression that has been produced in recent past times, and which Christ-centered focus, is now today, so very lacking,
in this faithless post-Christian era.
