Here’s a fun video of a high school talent performance where no one says a word but the audience is still rolling on the floor by the time it’s over.
I love a lot of hymns, but one of the favorites is the “Hallelujah chorus” “Hallelujah” is a choral piece that is part of the “Messiah,” an oratorio composed in 1741by George Friedrich Handel, a German-British Baroque composer. The “Messiah” was first performed in Dublin, Ireland, in 1742 and has since become one of the most famous and beloved choral works of all time. The “Hallelujah” chorus, which comes near the end, is a rousing and joyful piece that typically features a full choir and orchestra. It’s been performed thousands of times over the years by amateurs and professionals alike.
But I’m sure you haven’t seen a cover quite like this! How do think monks would sing this song? Better yet, how would ‘silent’ monks sing it? The following video shows a group of high school students performing a hilarious yet amazing rendition of this song.
They imagined how a group of monks under a vow of silence might put on a holiday program, and creatively acted out this chorus that had everyone spellbound! They managed to make it entertaining without even uttering a word! Watch the video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
