Product Description

As a steady favourite with audiences, Handel's most famous oratorio "Messiah" has met regularly with rapturous receptions ever since its premiere back in 1742! This three-part masterpiece portrays the life of the "anointed one" (the literal meaning of the Hebrew word 'Messiah'), from the Annunciation and his birth to his death on the cross and revelation, and contains a considerable number of baroque super-hits - including the world-famous 'Hallelujah Chorus'. What makes the present complete recording into something really special is, above all, the successful interpretation with its excellent line-up of performers: Julia Doyle, Lawrence Zazzo, Steve Davislim and Neal Davies, the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks (recently called "a new center for historically informed performance practice") under the overall direction of Peter Dijkstra, accompanied by B'Rock, the Belgian Baroque Orchestra Ghent.


Classics Today: Artistic Quality 9 / Sound Quality 10
"Dijkstra understands the dramatic necessities and organizational demands of a large work of many and varied parts, and he brings it all together with managerial skill and interpretive insight comparable to the best on disc; the energized performers and charged ambience owe much to the benefit of the live concert setting, performances in Munich in November, 2014. I'll never be one to say that the world has too many Messiah recordings, especially if the next new one is as good as this." --David Hurwitz,, 2015
