Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : Messiah, HWV 56, Oratorio
Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

From its 1742 premiere, Handel's oratorio "Messiah" has continued to be an audience favorite and for many, the initial portal into the world of Classical choral music. Portraying the life of the "anointed one" (the literal meaning of the Hebrew word 'Messiah'), from the Annunciation and his birth to his death on the cross and revelation, and including the famous 'Hallelujah Chorus.' , "Messiah" continues to draw rapturous reception when performed live. Featuring vocalists Julia Doyle, Lawrence Zazzo, Steve Davislim and Neal Davies performing in the original English-language version, along with the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks under the direction of Peter Dijkstra, and accompanied by the whimsically named B'Rock, the Belgian Baroque Orchestra Ghent, working from the original and historically informed scoring, this live recording manages to add to the canon of the "Messiah".Video Clip: Peter Dijkstra - Händels "Messiah"

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
They sing with fine discipline and sonority. The work that Dijkstra draws from them gives us the high points of the performance, with some particularly telling inflections in the Part II choruses. (The recorded sound there is noteworthy for clarity and directional spread.) The orchestral work is somewhat neutral. Dijkstra's conducting is sensible and intelligent, often effectively brisk and vigorous. The booklet gives the full text.
