2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Gawie Wolmarans on 6 April 2012
Most of the recordings of the Messiah rely rather on the brilliance of Handel's compostion than on the soloists to create an acceptable product. They therefore all sound like chorus members given solo pieces. This recording is different! Judith Nelson, Emma Kirby, Carolyn Watkinson, Paul Elliot and David Thomas all have a distinctive voice colour of their own, which doubles the listening pleasure. Christopher Hogwood, with his Academy of Ancient Music, specializes in creating a well-researched recreation of how the original performances would have sounded. Even using instruments dating back from that period. This is undoubtedly the best English-version recording of Handel's Messiah (ever?) made!
