    As others have said it is great as a whole. If I had to choose from each part:

    Part I - Scene III: “For unto us a child is born”

    Part II - Scene I: “Behold the Lamb of God”

    Part III - Scene IV: “Worthy is the Lamb”



    Honoured mentions to “Comfort ye my people” and “Hallelujah”.

    I love all of it, but if I had to choose from each part it would go like this (not in any order):

    Part I - And the glory of the Lord [Honourable mentions - Comfort ye/Ev'ry valley, For unto us a Child is born, And He shall purify, O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion (aria & chorus)]

    Part II - And with His stripes we are healed (Honourable mentions - Behold the Lamb of God, He trusted in God, He was despised, All we like sheep, Why do the nations rage, Hallelujah)

    Part III - Worthy is the Lamb (Honourable mentions - The trumpet shall sound, Since by man came death)

    As you can see, I love most of it too much to be able to pick just one favourite (even the honourable mentions are favourites).

    I like the idea of picking one from each part, so (there are so many good ones i just had to pick on the fly):

    Part 1 No 06. Aria. But who may abide the day of his coming? (alto / bass)

    Part 2 No 11. Aria. But thou didst not leave his soul in hell (soprano / tenor)

    Part 3 No 04. Aria. The trumpet shall sound (bass)

    I enjoy the Hallelujah chorus but I also love to listen to Worthy Is The Lamb & Amen choruses. They are the most enjoyable choruses to end any oratorio. BTW, my favorite CD of Messiah is the one by the late Sir Colin Davis w/ the LSO & choir. It's an old recording (1966) but it's still my own personal favorite.

    "Since by man came death" . . . the stasis of this chorus followed by the joy of "By man came also the resurrection of the dead" make perfect complements to a deep theological doctrine.

    My favorite part of the Messiah is "Unto us a child is born".

    "I Know That My Redeemer Liveth" (provided it's well sung).

    "I know that my redeemer liveth" or in German "Ich weiß, dass mein Erlöser lebet".

    The whole thing!

    But maybe if I had to pick it would be "He was despised". If done well, I think it's one of the most moving parts. But there is so much good stuff in the work.

    Ev'ry Valley
    Thus Saith the Lord
    The People That Walked in Darkness
    Rejoice Greatly, O Daughter of Zion
    He Was Despised
