From Mr Kenneth Way

Sir: I attended a performance of Messiah given by the Scottish Orchestra in the Paramount Picture House, Glasgow, in 1940. The audience all stood for the Hallelujah Chorus. My mother explained that it was always done - it was like "God save the King", only this was addressed to God.

Yours faithfully,

Kenneth Way
