Yesterday I attended an all Handel concert about 40 miles away from where I live, in the small city where I attended college. My husband joked that there would be no lyrics this time referring to Thunder and Lightning as there were in the Bach St. Matthew Passion. WRONG The program included the Chandos Anthem # 10 – The Lord is my Light, and the 6th section included these lyrics:
For who is God but the Lord; or who hath any strength except the Lord? The earth trembled and quak’d: the very foundations also of the hills shook and removed. He cast forth lightnings, and gave his thunder, and destroyed them.
