A real treat today. A complete performance of Handel’s “Messiah” oratorio, performed by the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge under the direction of Stephen Cleobury:
“For behold, darkness shall cover the earth”, recitative for Bass from “Messiah” by George Frederic Handel:
For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,
and gross darkness the people:
but the Lord shall arise upon thee,
and His glory shall be seen upon thee.
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light,
and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
A very Happy Easter to all of my Christian readers.
