Learn About The Hallelujah Chorus (free SQUILT download)

Today marks the beginning of Holy Week. 

I find that one of the best ways for me to worship is through MUSIC. 

I also find that one of the best ways to learn about HISTORY is through MUSIC. 

George Frederick Handel, a composer from the Baroque Era, composed The Messiah, an oratorio using text from the King James version of the Bible.

A part of that oratorio is the "Hallelujah Chorus", which is traditionally sung at Easter. There is so much rich history and tradition surrounding this piece of music (download the lesson below and I'll tell you more!). 

And, by the way, this little lesson is a perfect complement to the composer study in Classical Conversations, Cycle 1! 

Please enjoy this complimentary download, which teaches your children (and YOU) all about the "Hallelujah Chorus", as well as a little about the Baroque Era, what an oratorio is, and much more!  

SQUILT Curriculum users tell me they love these lessons because they are EASY to use, 100% internet linked, and it makes them feel that music is approachable, and MOST IMPORTANTLY - enjoyable!
