    I know that my Redeemer liveth...
    ... yet for us will still remain the holy German art... (Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg)

    Auf die Berge will ich steigen,
    Wo die dunklen Tannen ragen,
    Bäche rauschen, Vögel singen,
    Und die stolzen Wolken jagen.

    Ah how true. Until it is over you haven't had the complete experience and therefore cannot properly savor the entire performance.

    And the glory of the Lord....
    The people that walked in darkness....
    He shall feed His flock....
    Surely He hath borne our griefs....
    Behold and see....
    The Lord gave the word....

    I did hear once that someone's favourite was "Come for tea, my people...."

    After several years, at last went to a live performance again before Christmas. It was excellent - Doncaster Choral Society under Simon Lindley - and my niece was in the altos......

    "And He Shall Purify", "Rejoice Greatly, O Daughter of Zion", and yes, "Hallelujah"
