When the holiday season descends upon New York, it's not uncommon to hear the instantly recognizable music of Handel's Messiah pouring from concert halls and churches alike. Yet few performances are as world-renowned as those given by the New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center every year.
Take part in a true New York tradition by watching composer Jane Glover's rendition of the Messiah, with its "For Unto Us a Child is Born" and the epic Hallelujah chorus. It took composer George Frideric Handel only three weeks to create his masterpiece, yet it has been performed ceaselessly (particularly around Christmas) since 1742.
