Georg Friedrich Händel - Halleluja (Messias) is best when heard in German since that is the language in which it was written. When I was a young boy we had records of the complete Messiah - in German. We often sang Christmas songs in German. I still love the songs best when sung in German because it evokes memories of home, snow at Christmas, and holidays celebrated with a great deal of love and not much money.
The spirit of the Season is not an orgy of spending, but it is about being with those you love and dragging "Peace on Earth and Good Will toward all Men" out of the drawer. Enjoy the sounds of Christmas:
