    Good evening,

    I am working out of Atlanta all week, and I was driving from my hotel (downtown) to just south of Thomasville today. Georgia Public Radio is absolutely amazing, and can be picked up even in some of the most rural areas of the state. As I was obtaining my daily fix of all things classical, I began to think about some of the beautiful music Handel and Bach wrote that are religious in nature.

    Out of curiousity, do any of your churches peform these beautiful works? If so, what is your experience with the undertaking of such an endeavor? In other words, how easy / difficult is it?

    Regards from BEAUTIFUL downtown Atlanta,
    BiR

    Welcome to Atlanta! I'm glad you are enjoying our fair city.

    Our church does not perform any classical works. I wish they did! There's nothing like Handel's Messiah at Christmastime!

    I truly love your city. There is so much to see and always something to do. It also doesn't hurt when you are staying at the Ritz-Carlton! [​IMG]

    Yes, an excellent point.

    Regards,
    BiR

    Dear Baptist In Richmond,

    My church uses classical music as the prelude,offeratory,and postludes at both our 8:15AM & 11AM services every Sunday.

    We've also hosted the Messiah in December and Requiems by Mozart,Brahms,Faure',and Rutter,as well as other Christmas & Easter oratorios by Bach,etc.

    In Christ,

    Dale

    Hosted the Messiah in December? At your church?

    We bring Him to church with us faithfully every service of the year!

    Mine has, but doesn't regularly. My cousins attends a church that uses much more traditionaly classical type of music, and they use this type of music all the time. I do very much like it, and have seen what you see.

    "Eine Feste Burg Ist Unser Gott: Cantata Number 80" is one of my favorite pieces of Music. I did a major historical, analytical, and textual paper on it when I was in College. If you have heard the entire Cantata, you should really try and find it and listen to it. It really is great if you like that sort of thing like I do.

    I like that sorta thing, too. I love that work.

    Our church isnt really equipped to perform that type music. Maybe one day... Churches I have been in before have done so, and it was a great experience.
