Christmas with Vivace

Arlesey W I Hall
Saturday 12th December 2009

Programme

HANDEL, Messiah (1741-2) (Part I)

Chorus And the Glory of the Lord
Air But who may abide the day of his coming?
Chorus And he shall purify
Recit, air & chorus Behold a virgin shall conceive
O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion
Chorus For unto us a child is born
Recitative There were shepherds abiding in the field
And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them
And the angel said unto them
And suddenly there was with the angel
Chorus Glory to God
Recit and air Then shall the eyes of the blind
He shall feed his flock
Chorus Behold the Lamb of God
Air He was despised
Chorus Surely he hath borne our griefs
Chorus And with his stripes we are healed
ChorusAll we like sheep have gone astray
