Hallelujah Chorus – from Messiah by G F Handel – 200 Voice Combined Choirs
6 Choirs with near 200 voices come together in this video to sing one of the most popular pieces of music ever, written by George Frederick Handel, which resonates with the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, which we celebrate on Easter Sunday. OKTAVE, Friends Collective, The Cathedral Choir, St. Mary’s Choral Group, the choir of Ladies College, Colombo and the choir of Trinity College, Kandy make up the mass choir singing in harmony in 6 different locations.
