Handel's Hallelujah Chorus, performed by high school students

"Hallelujah Chorus,"  performed by NPHS Jazz Choir

This high school choir is performing Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus" at a Candlelight Dinner Celebration.  We contract out a series of choirs to perform concerts at holiday parties and corporate events throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.  All choirs are carefully selected and have to undergo an audition process.

Each student that you see in this choir takes private vocal lessons in their high school.
Part of this program includes a solo performance at a vocal recital, twice yearly.  These recitals are always filled with family and friends;  they a great way to showcase the progress that each child has made throughout their high school years.

To reserve one of our choirs for your own event, contact Joe at:

Messiah Part II
by George Frideric Handel

The last page of the Hallelujah Chorus, ending Part II, in Handel's manuscript
Year 1741
Period Baroque
Genre Oratorio
Text Charles Jennens, a compilation from the King James Bible and the Book of Common Prayer

Messiah (HWV 56), the English-language oratorio composed by George Frideric Handel in 1741, is structured in three parts. This listing covers Part II in a table and comments on individual movements, reflecting the relation of the musical setting to the text. Part I begins with the prophecy of the Messiah and his birth, shows the annunciation to the shepherds and reflects the Messiah's deeds on earth. Part II covers the Passion in nine movements including the oratorio's longest movement, an air for alto He was despised, then mentions death, resurrection, ascension, and reflects the spreading of the Gospel and its rejection. The part is concluded by a scene called "God's Triumph" which culminates in the "Hallelujah Chorus". Part III of the oratorio concentrates on Paul's teaching of the resurrection of the dead and Christ's glorification in heaven.

  1. My mother sang the Messiah every year in a choir in Rio de Janeiro, where we grew up, and it always brings back such warm memories. Especially the Hallelujah Chorus! Thanks for sharing this with us ...
