This musical masterpiece by George Frideric Handel, first performed in the spring of 1742, has become one of the world’s most beloved musical works.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square have now released their new recording of the famed oratorio of Messiah, an edition by Mack Wilberg for large choir and orchestra. This new recording relies on historical research and Baroque musical tradition to create a new Messiah for our time and is available in two options — the Complete Oratorio with a behind-the-scenes bonus DVD, and a 60-minute Highlights version!
Community, music, and church groups around the world joined together with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square on March 25, 2016, to celebrate Easter and experience their own Messiah Sing events via a live stream of the Internet. Using the On-Demand availability, others around the world will join with from many venues to enjoy that same experience. We have invited everyone to share their Messiah experiences with us! Come and see what others are sharing and plan to join with us by sharing your own experience using social media at #MessiahLive!
As a thank you to all our participants we have prepared a commemorative participation certificate (8.5" x 11" suitable for printing) to mark the March 25, 2016 Messiah Sing event. A participation certificate with no date is available for other event dates.
Thank you to those who joined with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to become part of the world’s largest Virtual Choir singing the beloved “Hallelujah” chorus. The combined “Hallelujah” chorus is now available to watch. #Hallelujah!
