A Mediocre Messiah
J. Faraldi | Manahawkin, NJ USA | 12/13/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)
"There is nothing very special about this Messiah. Some of the soloists clearly have pronunciation issues with the English. Some tempos are markedly different than "the norm" also. This is not necessarily bad but I do not think the choices always capture the spirit of the inspired text! The choir does good work though!
Overall you will do much better with performances by Pinnock or Parrott with the Tavener Enemble (both period style) the old C. Davis on Phillips (small scale with modern instuments) or for a larger scale "Messiah", Andrew Davis on EMI, to name a few."
