5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful ain't the half of it--- June 18, 2005
This album is downright inspired. If you think Handel and Soul music couldn't possibly-- well, they do. Send any formulaic expectations out to hit the road. I think the "Overture" could stand on its own--what a fun (as well as reverent) way to survey Black music in the United States. And on thru "Comfort ye", "For unto us", "Why do the Nations", on into the great "Hallelujah" this soulful celebration invites you in with smiles and warmth and great big hugs. Praise!

By nice T
This CD is a classic! If you love gospel/R&B music and well produced music then look no further. Quincy Jones brings together a list of musical greats from Take 6, Stevie Wonder, Patti Austin, Daryl Coley, Richard Smallwood, Tremaine Hawkins, Al Jarreau, and Tevin Campbell to name a few. Most of us have heard excepts of the classical Handel's Messiah during the christmas season and this collection is the "soulful" interpretations of some of the more familiar selections. Some of my favorites are "He shall purify", "Why do the Nations", "I know my Redemmer liveth" and the "Allelujah" chorus with a star studded choir. Of course nothing can compare to the classical original but this is a great work. This CD is getting difficult to find so get it while you can!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD December 9, 2004
This CD is awesome. The arranger kept a lot of the original Handel's Messiah in the songs, but just jazzed it up. So even the classical music lovers can appreciate the CD. The singers were very good. Not just a CD for Christmas time, but something that you can listen to all year.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Recording December 10, 2005
By Caseb
I really enjoy this album. I originally had it on cassette tape (when it first came out) but the tape broke (becuase I played it too mcuh) so I had to get it on CD. This is worth every penny and more.
