Monday music spot: "But who may abide the day of his coming"

Some little local difficulties with an old computer falling over in the heat prevented me from posting music spots on Saturday or Sunday, so here is the piece I had intended to post yesterday.

Andreas Scholl (Countertenor) sings the aria "But who may abide the day of his coming" from Handel's Messiah.

The lyrics are from Malachi Ch 3 Vs 2 and are as follows:

"But who may abide the day of His coming,
and who shall stand when He appeareth?
For He is like a refiner's fire."
