George Handel's Messiah Preformed In Tyler

Some East Texans got a chance to hear a masterpiece by one of the most well-known musical composers of all time:  George Handel's Messiah.  Christ Episcopal Church held the performance for the third year in a row.  Seventy-five East Texans were in the chorus. They were from 20 different congregations in the community.

"We feel that at this time of year we are celebrating the Christmas season and this is our gift of peace to all people in our area," said Christ Episcopal Church organist and choir master Donald Duncan.

Duncan said the group practiced for the last month several hours every week.
