~Handel's MESSIAH~the best recordings~

A Listmania! list by Gregory E. Foster "operabruin" (Portland, ME, USA)
(VINE VOICE)   
The list author says: "With this list, I shall lay out the best recordings of "Messiah" that are available readily, and also those not so easy to find, but these will be indicated as such. The list, as all my lists are, are in declining order.

---Do not be alarmed, they need critiques, etc.
--Eventually they will all have comments individually, but for now I am just laying out the list."
