Second Sunday music spot: Today's OT lesson set to music by Handel

Today's Old Testament lesson in the Anglican lectionary, which I read at St James's Whitehaven this morning, is Isaiah chapter 9, verses one to four, which includes a prophecy that the light would shine on people who had walked in darkness.

Here is Handel's setting of those words from his oratorio, "Messiah."
