Notes & Reviews:

Jeannette Sorrell and Apollo's Fire celebrate the holiday season with a unique release of Handel's Messiah: a three-disc set presenting a dramatic approach that explores the work as the theatrical entertainment Handel intended - an oratorio being a dramatic work, and Handel's bold declaration that Messiah was "A Sacred Oratorio." The DVD includes footage from rehearsals, concerts, and recording sessions as well as interviews with soloists, principal players, and Sorrell. The release will coincide with the orchestra's five sold-out concerts in their hometown of Cleveland: December 14 at Westminster Presbyterian Church, December 15 at St. Noel Church, December 16 - 18 at First Baptist Church, December 19 at St. Christopher's Catholic Church. Additional DVD specs not provided.

"A blend of scholarship and visceral intensity."- Gramophone

"The Messiah we've been waiting for."- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

International Record Review, March 2012
The 18-strong Apollo's Fire ensemble...plays with great crispness and vigour, offering terse supporting musical pillars to the voices and emphasizing rhythmic vigour over a sense of line...the instrumental playing here is pretty near faultless...There are some very fine solo voices...Forsythe can articulate Handel's typically breath-defying runs in 'Rejoice greatly' with a dazzling purity and total mastery of tone which has few equals on disc.
