Sex & God & Rock & Roll
As you say, truly wonderful. Is there anyone in the world who doesn't know at least some of the Hallelujah chorus.I'm too much of a technophobe to have picked it up on You Tube,Many thanks.
If you liked that, check out this flash mob performance in Phildelphia: http://www.philly.com/philly/video/106492678.htmlBTW, that pipe organ is considered by many to be the largest in the world.Enjoy your blog, though it's my first time to see it; it will be on my list to check often. Fairly new Episcopalian here (former Southern Baptist) from Texas, DFW area.
Thanks, Fred. I have quite a few readers who are interested in large organs.And, welcome. If you ever launch your own blog, make sure you let me know so I can give it a plug and add to The Neighbourhood.
I see that some even stood for the Chorus like the King of England was reported to have done! Most often they do that here in the US.Thanks, MP.
And here I thought that you were going to say that you had a few readers who are from Dallas/Ft Worth.
I found it a wee bit pretentious, mildly self-indulgent, slightly uppity (i.e. patronising the fat bogons in the food hall) a little smug and worst of all...boring.Nothing on the Pixar video on Chin Wag a few days back.Clearly I've had a bad day. I best go to bed.
Perhaps if you liked the Pixar video, you may also like the GLBT Broadway singers and musicians It gets Better video.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeKI8biAglU
It must be Sunday down there now, Boaz. I hope you feel better in the next 24 hours what ever that is for you(Sunday or Monday). By the way what the hell is a bogon?
Does anyone know at what point this bit of Easter music ended up linked so permanently with Christmas?
"The Messiah" is the whole Jesus story so it can be performed anytime. Handel was no fool.
The title is "Messiah".
Thanks Dah*veed. I enjoyed your link. I also enjoyed Barak Obama's, "It Gets Better" address. Like President Carter, he's too good to be a two-term President. (Big Oil and Big Weapons will get rid of him, under the guise of "restoring America's pride").
Susan, see http://www.bogan.com.au/definition/index.phpYes, we are a bit ahead of you and we're now off to the Advent Carols. (Which is a bit pretentious in itself). Mind you, here in Anglo-Fundie Land, there are very few parishes that will make any reference to Advent.
