I have been listening to Handel's MESSIAH for the past several months. Lately, it's been an obsession. When I'm not listening, the epic phrases from Isaiah and Matthew, Luke and Malachi run through my head along with the dynamic melodies. For the past five years, the evergreen Christmas tree has been a constant element in my cards. So...how to combine the Messiah and the quintessential evergreen? While listening to Handel's masterpiece, I arranged the most powerful phrases into form. Voila. In the spirit of thrift and efficiency, these are 5 1/2" x 8" postcards.
