Handel's Messiah

A bit of editorial license here.  This is not related to art or SLWS, but I want to share with you this uplifting piece, that spans all religious persuasions and may give you a boost of heart during this busy time.  Enjoy Handel's Messiah in a "Flash Mob" setting.  (A flash mob is just what you will see here; an unexpected explosion of song or other actions.)  Turn up your volume.
