Handel: Messiah

Judith Nelson, Emma Kirkby, Carolyn Watkinson, Paul Elliot, David Thomas

Choir of Christ Church Cathedral Oxford, The Academy of Ancient Music, Christopher Hogwood

Stodge no more. In Christopher Hogwood's hands, Messiah was no longer a ponderous and portentous work, but something tightly sprung and which demanded your attention.
