Hallelujah Messiah Wall Cross

Hallelujah Messiah Wall Cross

The Messiah "Hallelujah" Cross is the second in a series of three crosses inspired by an oratorio composed in 1741 during the Baroque period, the crowning achievement of George Frideric Handel, with scriptural text from the King James Bible. Designed by Alex Konahin and Master Die Engraver Len Youngo, this ornament celebrates the second part of Handel's Messiah, The prophecy and realization of God's plan to redeem mankind by the coming of the Messiah.

Handel composed Messiah without getting much sleep or even eating much food. When his assistants brought him his meals, they were often left uneaten. His servants would often find him in tears as he composed. When he completed “Hallelujah,” he reportedly told his servant, “I did think I did see all Heaven before me, and the great God Himself seated on His throne, with His company of Angels.”

Inspired by King James Bible:
“Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.”-Revelation 19:6. “And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.”-Revelation 19:16. “And he shall reign for ever and ever.” Revelation 11:15.
