At a recent rehearsal of Handel's "Messiah," conductor Bebe Kok asked the 100-voice Alabama Civic Chorale to turn around and look at what she was looking at. "It was a huge stained glass window of Christ," said Cissy Johnson, Kok's daughter and a 29-year veteran of the annual performance. "People were trying not to cry. She told us, 'That's what I do every year. I get to listen to you and look at that.' It makes you think about what you're singing."
