The Crooked Straight

In Handel’s otherwise laudable The Messiah the tenor sings the words “Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low”.

However, I beg pause to consider what the world would really look like after such a change.



Probably better to leave things as they are.


(The author of the text, Charles Jennens, is quoting Isaiah 40:4, and it may not reflect the personal opinion of George Frideric Handel. With this in mind, we were initially going to call this post The Isaiah National Certificate in Landscape Management.)
