J. F. Handel's Messian

Directed by Alex Ager

Part 1

        Sinfony (Overture)

        Comfort Ye

        Ev'ry Valley Shall Be Exalted

        And The Glory of the Lord

        Thus Saith the Lord

        But Who May Abide the Day of His Coming?

        And He Shall Purify

        Behold, A Virgin Shall Conceive

        O Thou That Tellest Good Tidings to Zion

        For, Behold, Darkness Shall Cover the Earth

        The People 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

         He Shall Feed His Flock Like a Shepherd

        His Yoke is Easy

Part 2

        Behold the Lamb of God

        He Was Despised

        Surely He Hath Borne Our Griefs

        And With His Stripes We are Healed

        All We Like Sheep Have Gone Astray

        He was Cut Off Out of the Land of Living

        But Thou Didst Not Leave His Soul in Hell

        Though Shalt Break Them

        Hallelujah

Part 3

        I Know That My Redeemer Liveth

        Since by Man Came Death

        Behold, I Tell You a Mystery

        The Trumpet Shall Sound

        Worthy is the Lamb

        Amen
