My Favorite Messiah!
Erin Matthiessen | Portland, OR USA | 10/03/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an eccentric choice of "best" Messiah recording, but I love it for it's restrained emotionalism. In a very British way, it is both soulful and dignified. Harwood and Baker's duet "He Shall Feed His Flock" exemplifies all the best of this recording: committed, heartfelt, superbly even radiantly sung. All of these singers are wonderful, and unjustly forgotten in our time.
If you want historical "authenticity" (which is really a nonsequitir in music), this is probably not for you. Choose this if you want full-throated singing and full-bodied musicmaking."
