There is nothing more fitting than seeing a group of monks standing together about to perform Handel’s Hallelujah chorus. However, there was something very special about this performance by the South Kitsap High School students back in 2008.
In Washington State, USA, these creative students performed an entertaining and comedic version of Handel’s Hallelujah chorus that would eventually go viral all over the internet. In the video, you can see how much effort had gone into the timing of this performance. Also, towards the end, you can hear a very proud dad shouting in support. Below is another performance of the same song by the monks!
What Is The “Hallelujah Chorus”
The Hallelujah Chorus is a well known piece, which suits many voices, in the Messiah by George Frederick Handel. The audience should always stand while the Hallelujah Chorus is being sung, by tradition, because King George II did this at the first London performance of the Messiah in 1743.
