(Grade 3 · w/opt. SATB Choral)
Handel's most frequently performed and most famous oratorio is probably best known for the famous Hallelujah. The Hallelujah is the grand chorus that caused the King to rise from his seat and as all good subjects, the entire audience rose with him. This tradition holds true even today reminding us of the great beginnings of this powerful music. This arrangement, for band and optional choir, has been lowered a tone from the original into C concert.
NOTE: Choral parts to this specific arrangement are not available. Although this arrangement is not in the original vocal key, the arranger suggests using the standard vocal version if adding chorus with the band.
