Hark! Angels Sing



I imagine shepherds on the hillside, watching their flocks by night. Someone is playing a simple wooden flute, a quiet melody floating over men and sheep–gray shadows caught in a flicker of firelight.


BOOM! The skies open with a crack of thunder and an explosion of light. The angels split the sky with a perfect performance of Handel’s Messiah!

Beats the food court flash mob’s Hallelujah Chorus all hollow. Listen here to the flash mob, think shepherds at night.bless soul pic

  1. Actually, I think the angels were singing Van Halen’s ‘Jump’.

    Can we agree, Andrew, that angels may have wide-ranging musical preferences?
