“Messiah”: Music for the Christmas Season

Go behind the scenes at Washington National Cathedral and watch Catholic University senior and Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly intern Michael Soukup’s look at the Cathedral Choir preparing for a recent performance of Handel’s “Messiah.”

    Nice range for a short clip. Watching it I feel like the elements of the majestic music are seeking and scaling the equally majestic elements of the architecture. And the sensitive shots of the musicians are a metaphor for all of us; I’m with them as they lift their voices in praise of the great things inspired man can do.

    Nice…although its brevity and lack of interaction with or interview of the musicians left me wanting more of the promised “inside look.”
