Hallelujah, Remix

I went to rehearsal last night, for the Easter concert.  The boys, having been forced to listen to me waxing on admiringly about Handel's Messiah at Christmas, said, "Well, you're gonna sing the Hallelujah part - where we all stand up - again, aren't you?"  (They liked it.)

Well, sure, of course we are.  I mean, what's Easter without Hallelujah?

But we're not.  We're not?!

Because we're singing this one instead - the Hallelujah from Beethoven's Mount of Olives.  I don't know how to post a video, so do yourself a favor - click the link and give it a listen.

The recording is a bit fuzzy - hard to make out all the words, which are, (with much repetition):

Hallelujah
unto God's Almighty Son
Praise the Lord
ye bright angelic choirs 
in holy songs of joy
Hallelujah
unto God's Almighty Son
Praise the Lord 
in songs of joy
O praise the Lord
in holy songs of joy
Man, proclaim His grace and glory
Hallelujah
unto God's Almighty Son
Praise the Lord
in holy songs of joy

I don't think the boys will be disappointed.
