Performance Today

with host Fred Child

The Hallelujah Chorus

Ever wonder what makes some music great? It's maybe not as subjective as it seems. Music commentator Rob Kapilow (pictured) joins host Fred Child today to talk about some of the techniques that George Frideric Handel used in his "Hallelujah Chorus," techniques that make it a choral masterpiece. And conductor Harry Christophers leads a performance of the Messiah, from a concert in Germany.
