Händel´s Messiah

By spotogspindel | December 4, 2017

It´s not my traditional artistic expression, but since the blog is also inspirational, I wanted to add a post on my latest adventure. It´s been on my bucket-list for over 30 years! To join a choir and sing Händel´s Messiah. And of course the Hallelujah-choir is the highlight. It is been a favorite of mine since I first heard it as a child, I think.

I´ve sung in choirs for years, albeit it´s been a while. And I´ve always been a soprano. But the soprano-voices in this piece are for extreme practitioners! It´s been a race against time to train my voice back up to the proper heights (to actually be able to sing it).

With the addition of 14 musicians from Stavanger Symphony Orchestra and 4 excellent soloists, we had two concerts over the weekend. When we finally came to the Hallelujah, I almost choked up and couldn´t sing at all, because I was thinking “This is it! This is my dream coming true!” But then I swallowed the tears and smiled and sang with 30 years of bottled up joy! 😀
