Films For Easter: Messiah Rocks!

Happy Palm Sunday! Today's film recommendation is actually a professionally filmed music concert.
Some of you might think that Handel's Messiah was written about the Christmas story but that would only be 1/2 true. In fact a great portion of the oratorio features the Easter story too. Jason Howland and Dani Davis adapted the classic oratorio with a contemporary and understandable libretto and incorporated a rock band.
I understand that this may not be everyone's cup of tea but for those who want to add something different to their music collection may I highly suggest Handel's Messiah Rocks! that can be found on CD, mp3 (& Apple Music streaming) and a special PBS DVD featuring the Boston Pops Orchestra.
Happy Passion Week!
