Hallelujah! A Global Mash-up of Handel's 'Messiah' from the PBS NewsHour

The journalists at the PBS NewsHour were debating last week what gift we could give our viewers and readers for the holidays. One thing sprang to mind that is almost universally enjoyed this time of year: Handel's "Messiah." You know, the one with the famous "Hallelujah! Hallelujah!" chorus. The oratorio is nearly as universal as death and taxes, and it seems everyone has an interpretation of it: from handbells to Hong Kong, from your uncle to a dance club DJ. Even at the ripe old age of 269, the stirring "Hallelujah Chorus" retains a powerful power to draw people together. So from the PBS NewsHour family with help from some of our friends at local PBS member stations and scores of people around the world who have uploaded their versions of "Messiah" to YouTube, here's our global mash-up of the "Hallelujah Chorus."
