Afternoon Song – Rejoice Greatly, O Daughter Of Zion

December 13, 2015

For many Christians this third Sunday of Advent is Gaudete (Rejoicing) Sunday, a kind of “little Christmas” in anticipation of the great feast.

To celebrate, here’s the great Kathleen Battle with one of the great rejoicing songs in the European tradition: Handel’s “Rejoice Greatly, O Daughter Of Zion” aria from Handel’s Messiah oratorio.
