Inspired and moved by Handel’s Messiah

Media_httpuploadwikim_qnqvw

This oratorio was written by G F Handel 268 years ago using the text of The Authorised Version of the Bible published in 1611. I am listening to a recording made 50 years ago by the Huddersfield Choral Society and The Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargeant.
It is timeless, beautiful, inspiring, transcendent and deeply moving.
A fitting celebration for the birth of the Messiah 2000 years ago.

Deep in the bowels of BBC Radio York, there’s been rumblings for many years. Great bands, stunning live sessions and an ethic of getting some, frankly, bloody great music out there. That’s all well and good, but it ain’t live – and the penny has dropped in Bootham Towers courtesy Mr Matt Seymour, music champ, prolific Twitterer and man of enthusiastically eclectic taste. From Cavalier’s transatlantic commercial balladry to Overreact’s angular indie-punk clatter inspired by Tokyo Police Club. From Julianne Moore’s Polyphonic Spree with synths to the jazz/soul/trip-hop of Alvin Purple; a terrific night is in store and all recorded for posterity and future broadcast.

 

Please note you must be 14 or over to gain admittance read our ID policy.

Such hyperbole – but no less than any other gig blurb at this fine venue

Record labels must face the music

Instead of trying to criminalise its customers, the music industry should be looking at innovative ways to make filesharing work

Much of this sounds like a promo for Spotify and Last FM. I’ve always “defended” the right of artists and publishers to enforce copyright and personally I’ve felt that copying music, be it on cassette or digitally, was some kind of theft. But now it has to be time to rewrite the rule book –  the music industry has to bite the bullet if they want to survive.
