Hallelujah! Featuring Laura Osnes and Martin Jarvis Available Now
If you’re looking for the perfect Christmas album, this one has it all—Broadway star Laura Osnes beautifully singing Christmas favorites, the poignant narration of British screen actor Martin Jarvis, and guest soloists from the Metropolitan Opera.
In this recording, from the Christmas concerts held on historic Temple Square in Salt Lake City, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square present the story of George Frideric Handel’s life through song. On the verge of being broke, Handel struggled to write his celebrated oratorio, Messiah. The story behind Messiah celebrates freed debtors, charitable giving, rescued children, and the Messiah's mission to save God’s children from spiritual death.
With its Christ-centered focus, Hallelujah! the album and accompanying DVD invites listeners to feel the true meaning of Christmas. The music includes favorites such as “Do You Hear What I Hear?” performed by Osnes, “Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful,” “Angels from the Realms of Glory,” and many more, including a breathtaking rendition of “For unto Us a Child Is Born” from Handel’s Messiah, performed by the Metropolitan Opera soloists. The Christmas story, as told in the book of Luke in the New Testament, is poetically narrated by Jarvis.
