Handel - "Messiah"/ The Choir of King's College, Cambridge

For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness the people; but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee, and the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: and they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be call├Ęd Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. -- Isaiah

Splendid, I also love the BBC's Christmas Eve "Carols from King's", especially the 2010 broadcast; do read the commentary:
