Handel Hallelujah Chorus



Handel's Hallelujah Chorus needs no introduction. It is one of the most widely recognized classical choral pieces in the world. The Hallelujah Chorus is the last movement from the second part of The Messiah. It is usually performed at Christmas concerts, even though the text is actually from Easter. Audiences are expected to stand whenever the Hallelujah Chorus is performed; this dates back to the very first performance in London when King George II stood.

This composition can be played by 5,195 different combinations of instruments (really!).
