For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  (John 3:16)

 

“To love another person is to see the face of God.”  (Les Misérables)

 

There is no piece of classical music so inseparably associated with Christmas as G. W. F. Händel’s Messiah.  This isn’t the first time that I’ve employed it in these Advent posts, and I can guarantee, barring some sort of disaster, that it won’t be the last.

 

Please enjoy this recording of “And the glory of the Lord,” by the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chorus:

And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it
together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. (Isaiah 40:5)
