Hallelujah: The Bible and Handel's Messiah
10 Sessions, or 4 Advent & 6 Lent
A study for both the music lover and the biblical seeker, it explores the scriptural texts of Handel's Messiah. This study offers careful examination of the texts and opens doors to your community in a new way.
With four sessions on the Advent texts and six sessions on the Lenten texts, it may be offered as two seasonal courses or as one ten-week course. A recording of Messiah is recommended for class use: We offer the 2-CD Chicago Symphony version.

Behold the Lamb of God
He Trusted in God
Who is the King of Glory?
I Know That My Redeemer Liveth
Why Do the Nations Rage?
Hallelujah, Worthy Is the Lamb, Amen
