Crack organist/organist on crack

This was e-mailed to me today - apologies if you've already seen it, but it's too good not to post. Apparently, this is from a recording of an amateur choral society's performance of the Messiah; but the organist was a professional hired for the occasion. I hope they got their money back. To their immense credit the choir don't flinch for a second in the face of some of the most extraordinary chords this side of Messiaen. (For full impact, this is best heard with a bit of volume.)
