Off Topic: Random Acts of Culture — Handel’s Messiah in a Mall
|November 14, 2010||Posted by GilDodgen under Culture, Off Topic|
As many UD readers know, I am a classical pianist by training since the age of seven. The piano and classical music have been a tremendous inspiration all my life, and this was my refuge during four decades in the hideous darkness of atheism.
After 2.5 centuries, great, uplifting works of musical art such as Handel’s Messiah endure.
But fear not, we have in the 20th century such great classics as those by the Rolling Stones with these inspirational lyrics:
I can’t get no satisfaction,
I can’t get no girly action.
How far we have come since Handel’s masterwork!
