Re: All Rise for "Hallelujah"!

I would always stand at the Hallelujah chorus as it is a tradition that my late father taught me about. It is an unfortunate fact of life that due to an over enthusisatic political correctness so many traditions are being cast aside.
Furthermore this music makes one want to stand up - it is so inspiring! So, I would be the last person to smugly sit tight just because one British king chose to to stand because he was moved. It is a point I do not need, or want, to prove.
