Thank you for sharing this, Uta!
I haven’t heard it in too long…but always enjoyed it so much when I would hear it.
Such powerful, profound music and messages.
PS…so wonderful that they performed even in this unusual mask-y time. 🙂 And their voices give me good goosebumps up and down my arms, and joy-teary-eyes. 🙂
Yes, Carolyn, ‘even in this unusual mask-y time’, a wonderful performance. A few years ago, I went in Wollongong with Peter, Caroline and Matthew to a performance of Handel’s MESSIAH. I remember, on that day on th way home I did get a very strong nosebleed. But then Peter and I caught the bus home to Dapto, and all was well! 🙂
Carolyn, I just looked it up: This was nine years ago!
I think, I am going to copy this post from the 4th of December 2011 . . . .
