From G. F. Handel's Messiah
We all know the thrill of singing this great work with a full orchestra - the power, the glory, the chills up your spine. But the original version isn't exactly designed for children's voices. That's why we have created a new setting of this classic especially developed for young choirs. It is in a lower key, and is arranged for two treble voices. It runs about four minutes, with the optional prologue.
As you would expect, we are also providing a superb recording featuring full orchestra with both a full performance and just the accompaniment. There are also special rehearsal tracks to help each part learn the music.
A Special Prologue For Extra Drama! To add a special touch to your performances, we have also added a short, special prologue with an air of anticipation and an optional narration. The recording is designed so that you can perform the work with the prologue or with the original opening to the work.
With this product, we're offering the orchestral score and instrumental parts for the arrangement heard on the recording. This way, if you have a community orchestra, or a fairly good school orchestra, you can perform the work live. The orchestration is available in downloadable form as a PDF.
