Having sung Part 1 in 2015,
in Autumn 2016 we will be tackling Part 2 of Handel’s Messiah.
N.B. Don’t learn nos.35, 37 and 39, as they are being omitted!
Here’s a complete list of the choruses we will be singing:-
*No.22 Behold the Lamb of God (don’t use Choralia or Cyberbass for this one)*
(See special tracks below for No.22)
No.24 Surely he hath born our griefs
No.25 And with his stripes
No.26 All we like sheep
No.28 He trusted in God
No.33 Lift up your heads
No.41 Let us break their bonds assunder

*N.B. For No.22 (Behold the Lamb of God) the rhythm on the Choralia and Cyberbass tracks is not what we want, so John has provided separate learning tracks (see below) for this one only.
All the other choruses are fine on Choralia and Cyberbass
