Product Description

Product Description

'Christie, perhaps more than any of these reaches the contemplative heart of Messiah in a comfortably paced performance, devoid either of effort or intrusive artifice. He adheres in principal to Handel s 1742 Dublin performance and fields a fine group of soloists among whom are soprano Sandrine Piau, tenor Mark Padmore and countertenor Andreas Scholl whose He was despised is tenderly declaimed.' Nicholas Anderson, Early Music Today, December 2005/January 2006

Review

BUILDING A LIBRARY RECOMMENDATION For quality of soloists, this disc ranks top dog... exquisite. Padmore s opening recitative arioso uses silence more eloquently than any other recording I ve heard, while limpid beauty of Scholl s Countertenor voice combined with the subtlety of his interpretation makes the simplest melodies the most eloquent. --Berta Joncus, Building a Library, BBC Music Magazine- Christmas 2013

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A great recording for those wanting to listen to the Watkins Shaw rendition of Messiah. Excellent soloists and it is lovely to hear a counter-tenor singing the alto solos. A real must for your music library.
