Les Petits Chanteurs de Sainte-Croix de Neuilly: – MESSIAH – Rejoice

The fast major-key beginning and end of this lovely soprano aria from Messiah require a singer capable of virtuosic singing while the slow minor-key middle section requires the singer to be expressive and meditative. In short it’s difficult to sing. Rémi B of the Petits Chanteurs de Sainte-Croix de Neuilly under Simon Polgar sings it really rather well in this video of a live performance given in May 2006. Enjoy :-).

Text: Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion,
shout, O daughter of Jerusalem,
behold, thy King cometh unto thee.
He is the righteous Saviour,
and He shall speak peace unto the heathen.
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion,
shout, O daughter of Jerusalem,
behold, thy King cometh unto thee.
