An Easter listening recommendation from The Coolest Person on the Internet
The album is a re-working of Handel's classical masterpiece "Messiah". With choirs, break-beats, symphonic hits and huge sounds it's a must listen and a great musical change of pace during the Christmas or Easter holidays. It's also a nice reminder that before the nightmare that is "Contemporary Christian Music" Christianity had been a massive influence on musicians and artists for hundreds of years. [And no I'm not trying to get religious here, just simply pointing it out.]
Here are a couple track from it, including the one you'll definitely know from the original "Hallelujah".
GLORY TO GOD-
I'm not sure if it's on CD, but it is on Vinyl and cheap too over at Dusty Groove, so whatreya waiting for! Go get it!
