For Choral Union, here’s our Gospel Hallelujah for your viewing/listening enjoyment. Handel’s Messiah: A Soulful Celebration is a critically acclaimed gospel album by various artists, released in 1992. Executive produced by Norman Miller, Gail Hamilton and Mervyn Warren, it is a reinterpretation of the 1741 oratorio Messiah by George Frideric Handel, and has been widely praised for its use of multiple genres of African-American music, including spirituals, blues, ragtime, big band, jazz fusion, R&B and hip hop.

Here is an audio-only version from the original CD:

And here is my favorite version of the original “Hallelujah” from Handel’s Messiah, performed by the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists, John Eliot Gardiner, conductor. This is the version that concludes the concert and is an audience sing-along!


For University Choir, here’s your arrangement of “Deck the Hall” by Mack Wilberg performed by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir under Wilberg’s direction.
