I have several recordings of Messiah, but this one is really special. Obviously the singing is just as one would expect from The Sixteen and Harry Christophers - fantastic quality - but the music sounds so fresh and exciting as well. Another hit for me.

This is a wonderful recording with a smaller than usual group. This enhances the clarity of the work and gives a very different listening experience to some of the pieces that we are used to hearing from a larger ensemble. The soloists are clear and accurate. Overall, this is the best version of the Messiah that I have ever heard.

Perfection! Unbelievable playing, immaculate choral singing and superb soloists. You need no other version.

I love 'The Messiah', and this is one of my favourite renditions of it. 'The Sixteen' as a choir have a purity of sound and clarity of diction, without being clipped or cold. Exquisite musicianship, fine feeling, sensitive interpretation of the meaning.

This recording is chrystal clear and the perfect diction of the singers makes it possible to enjoy the text of this great mucic. Very different from the huge choirs we are used to hearing, but note perfect - Brilliant !

Harry Christophers is just fantastic. This recording is stunningly beautiful, as you would expect from The Sixteen. I love Handel's Messiah and wanted something special - and this is.

A really good recording with excellent musicianship. Would recommend it to others and will probably choose recordings by this group as a preference

A very enjoyable live feel to this recording that brings over the pace and impact of the piece. I'd recommend it.

Absolutely perfect in every way, especially as our choir is starting rehearsals for the Messiah in September.
