The Answer was blowing in the wind…

17Apr11

Yes, at the annual Dublin Handel Messiah sing-along on Fishamble Street (site of the original performance (1742). It was blowing like crazy – typical Dublin spring day. But who cared? A thousand like-minded Handelians assembled to smooze and sing, along with the professional choir and musicians. 

What was really nice that I saw no hawkers selling Handel wigs, CD’s, T-shirts, mugs, etc, etc. It was just music and the occasional gust of cold spring Irish wind.  And no one came dressed as Handel, alas.

Here’s a flash-mob of The Messiah, but not the one we attended: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXh7JR9oKVE
