This is not the best recording of Messiah but it is by no means a disaster. Susskind was an able conductor with a valid view of this great piece. The recording from the 1950s is more than adequate (there is some roughness in the treble but it is full and clear - though some edits are very obvious indeed). The orchestra is excellent and the choir sing well. The soloists - all of them - are superb, among the very best in any version of Messiah! Susskind's tempos are slow by modern standards but there is good rhythmical bounce and a genuine sense of the greatness of the piece. If you can adjust to the broad tempos and the big scale conception then you will discover important aspects of this masterpiece in this performance - and the set costs next to nothing!

I'm not a music expert, and I've read (and heard) more than one complaint from music aficionados about the recording quality. My suggestion is that if you're looking for an in-depth, powerful recording to search elsewhere. However, if you just want to be able to enjoy Handel at his finest, this is the purchase for you. You just can't beat the price.

I agree with M Barker and her review. This is a recording beyond belief. The first secion opens as a TRUE PRAYER with the tenor above the choir as well it should be. I don't want the ponderous Mormon Tabernacle Choir or the opening section trying to imitate the baroque period with an up-tempo round-dance. It is a true prayer. I am not a religious person --- I'm an agnostic at 71 but the beauty of this recording transcends any other Messiah recording I've experienced. I haven't owned a television for over 40 years and consider myself a true music connoisseur. This recording is a treasured moment where the performance transcends the art form.

CD is very good, but the 2 paper labels in the case are wrong. For Disc 2, the songs are listed in reverse order, ie, song # 1 on the label, Amen, is actually Song # 23 on the disc. Song # 23 on the label, He Was Despised..., is actually Song # 1 on the disc. Amazon says they can't replace the labels, but say they will issue a $1 refund.

This Handel's Messiah was performed back in 1953 or 1958. This is the best performance in recording, singing, and symphony music. I am a die-hard fan of it so to speak and have theee complete old vinyl turntable album sets plus many other performances. I have listened to it since about 1978.

If anybody wants to purchase somewhat complete Messiah, this is the one. I have not heard any other performance better than this one. Both solo and chorus are superb. Compare by going to YouTube, then you will know what I mean.

There are two, three, or four missing songs in this CD compared to the original and complete Handel's composition but it matches with the three vinyl turntable album set, that is, this CD was made from it.

I was not able to play it on my cd player. I was told that it is an older model and some new cds don't play on older models. I have played it on my computor and it is beautiful. Nevertheless I wish I could play it on the entertainment system I have because it is wired all over the house.
