Notes & Reviews:
The earliest version [of Messiah] to make a real stylistic breakthrough was that in 1966 by Colin Davis, which remains a front runner by reason of its almost incandescent vitality, its buoyancy and crispness of rhythm and its lightness of texture. The LSO Chorus is wonderfully agile, the harpsichord continuo is one of the best on record.
