But who may abide...

Emma Kirkby sings of God's Judgement in part I of Handel's Messiah. Enjoy!


  1. Thank you for this, Patricius! :)

    1. Yes, thank you. As an aside, how odd it is to me to be able to see the performers faces. My vision is not all that good, especially these last 15 years or so. Seeing them is a mixed blessing, especially in the case of the curly-haired ginger fellow at the start. His facial expressions seemed a bit disturbing, but it is probably a traditional part of the performance, and one that I have never seen. When I had good eyes, I had cheap tickets.

      Also, it amazes me that the singing seems to be so effortless for such well trained voices. Of course, it is not effortless, especially when one considers the years of training.
