Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...the text on its own terms is clearly what drives this thoughtful and invigorating new Messiah. That said, McCreesh still feels the need to justify his interpretation...setting out his stall as he does with an essay entitled 'A Messiah for the Millennium'...Handel's choruses encapsulate all the vitality and litheness of the modern English vocal consort at its best...A Messiah for the millennium? Certainly, one of the best around..." -JF-A, Gramophone
