:shock: If Handel were alive today, he'd be rolling over in his grave! Where's the bass guitar and the bagpipes?

Actually, Corlyss, I think there were some bagpipes in that mix.

I think somebody's music was upside down.

Okay, I gotta know where that's from?

Someone did a "rock" version of the Messiah back in the 70s or so, with a number of big names. It was execrable. All I can remember about it is that the woman who inspired the song Brown Sugar sang some of the arias.

It seemed not too bad until 0:24. I laugh every time. I think that wrong big note throws the entire choir off also and the timing couldn't be worse, but it's perfect comic timing. I can see the audience going, do you think we should applaud? or laugh?

Have you ever seen this very clever version?

That is the Turtle Creek Chorale, a mostly Gay Men's chorus in Dallas. I had the privilege of singing in a special concert with them a couple of years ago and they are simply amazing.

And this is funny as can be!
