‘Hallelujah Chorus’ Played on 129-Ranks Pipe Organ
A talented young man gave a dazzling and stirring performance of a beloved and highly recognizable piece of music about the birth of Jesus Christ.
Many pieces of music have been created to commemorate and honor the momentous, world-changing occasion when Jesus Christ was born. His entrance gave hope to a lost, broken, and hurting world. Never before and never again will one birth change everything for everyone.
Songs like “Joy to the World,” “Silent Night,” “Little Drummer Boy,” and a handful of other Christmas tunes perfectly capture the excitement and joy felt following that precious child’s birth. In a clip posted on YouTube, one musician, Paul Fey, plays another song about Christ's birth.
Paul uses a massive, awe-inspiring instrument – a 129-rank pipe organ – to play the “Hallelujah Chorus.” If you’re unfamiliar with the tune by the name, give the clip a few seconds, and you will instantly recognize the piece by its opening first few notes.
The “Hallelujah Chorus” is a piece of music heard in countless movies, television shows, and commercials, especially during the Christmas season.
Paul’s hands expertly dance up and down and along the keys as the 3-and-a-half-minute clip gives viewers shot after shot of the enormous and stunning musical tool. The musical skill in the short but epic clip is mind-blowing.
The “Hallelujah Chorus” is a heavenly-sounding tune created by man. While the song may be an earthy creation, many likely envision legions of angels singing this memorable chorus in the moments following the birth of Jesus Christ in that Bethlehem stable.
Really, what better and other way would there have been than to respond with a never-ending chorus of “hallelujah” following the arrival of the King of kings and Lord of lords?
The one sent to Earth to save man from their sins had finally arrived! Hallelujah, indeed!
