Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...This is a properly rehearsed Messiah, a real rarity. Everything has been carefully considered and prepared, yet it sounds joyful, spontaneous and musical...The choral tone is surpassingly lovely...Even more remarkable is the way they phrase their lines, which gives the music an unusual sense of purpose. The soloists are amongst the best on record..." -Classic CD
