Hallelujah (from Messiah)
HandelĀ'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 has been lowered a tone from the original into C concert. The treatment of the Solo Cornet part is quite different here. To allow for a clearer, more balanced line, the Solo Cornet part has been split into 4. This allow for independent playing as well as doubling when necessary.
