Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
One of the freshest and most exciting Messiahs on CD reconciling 'authentic' practice with the work's undoubted scope for grandeur. Superb soloists.

Penguin Guide
Pinnock [more than his rivals] balances his period instruments to give a satisfying body to the sound. There is weight too in the singing of the bass soloist, John Tomlinson, firm, dark and powerful, yet marvellously agile in divisions. Arleen Augér's range of tone and dynamic is daringly wide
