To all of my friends and readers who are celebrating, very happy Easter to you all. In celebration, I offer you a piece of music that is one of my favourites from Handel’s Messiah. The truth of the matter is, I love the entire Messiah. It has become a tradition to listen to in my house at Christmas and Easter. I know that everyone has their favourite version – mine happens to be the one conducted by Andrew Davis in Toronto with the Toronto Symphony, the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir and some of the most beautiful voices: Kathleen Battle, Florence Quivar, John Aler, and Samuel Ramsey.
Here, listen to Samual Ramsey’s amazing bass voice as he belts out beautifully The Trumpet Shall Sound.
