Notes & Reviews:

There is no definitive version of Handel's oratorio "Messiah", and the issue of arriving at the definitive setting has vexed conductors for over 200 years. Calling upon a lifetime's experience and upon every r liable manuscript, Owen Burdick, Organist and Music Director at historic Trinity Church, is joined by his celebrated choir composed of twenty of New York's finest professional singers, in a performance that reveals the timeless majesty of this popular masterwork.
