This gentle, lyrical “Alleluia” is based on the “Pastoral Symphony” instrumental interlude from Messiah. The word “Alleluia” has replaced the instrumental melody, and harmonies have been created for the voices. You will recognize popular identifying motives in the score that are now assigned to voice parts. Students will enjoy making comparisons to the original instrumental version as they enjoy becoming familiar with this vocal arrangement.
