Contents: Disc 1. Overture --
Comfort ye my people --
Every valley shall be exalted --
And the glory of the Lord --
Thus saith the Lord --
But who may abide the day of his coming? --
Ane he shall purify --
Behold, a virgin shall conceive --
O thou that tellest good things to Zion --
For, behold, a darkness shall cover the Earth --
The peopel that walked in darkness --
For unto us a child is born --
Pastoral symphony --
There were shepherds abiding in the field --
And the angel said unto them --
And suddenly there was with the angel --
Glory to God --
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion --
Then shall the eyes of the blind be opened --
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd --
His yoke is easy, and his burthen is light --
Behold the lamb of God --
He was despised. Disc 2. He trusted in God that he would deliver him --
Thy rebuke hath broken his heart --
Behold, and see if there be any sorrow --
He was cut of the land of the living --
But thou didst not leave his soul in Hell --
Lift up your heads, O ye gates --
How beautiful are the feet of them --
Their sound is gone our into all lands --
Why do the nations so furiously rage --
Let us break their bonds asunder --
He that dwelleth in heaven --
Thou shalt break them --
Hallelujah! --
I know that my redeemer liveth --
Since by man came death --
Behold, I tell you a mystery --
The trumpet shall sound --
Then shall be brought to pass --
O death, where is thy sting? --
But thanks be to God --
If God be for us, who can be against us? --
Worthy is the lamb.
Responsibility: George Frederick Handel.
