Reviews

  • A mediocre rendition of a great work

    2
    By Adam1589
    I love the messiah, but I found myself yawning when listening to this version. Its banal interpretation and plodding pace rob it of much of the fire, urgency, and joy that I love so much. I would recommend spending a few extra dollar to purchase Christopher Hogwood's version.
  • Excellent quality!

    By Pecanhardshell
    This is the best recording of The Messiah I have heard!
  • Prehistoric recording

    If you are after a modern recording you should probably look elsewhere. This was recorded in 1958. Sound quality and performance standards have moved on since then!
  • I love the messiah!

  • First review I have written...

    Let me just say I have considered writing reviews before, but I couldn't resist this time when I saw this album was only 8 dollars. I puchased it around a year ago and forgot it was so inexpensive, especially considering the number of times I have listened to it. I have heard many versions of the most notable songs on the album, such as the Overture, Hallelujah, and I know that my redeemer liveth and I have yet to hear a better recording. Truly the best 8 dollars you will ever spend.
  • An underwhelming experience.

    By Maus Merryjest
    I must mention that compared to other Messiah performances, this one leaves a lot to be desired. While the Philharmonic does wonderfully, the vocal part is simply underwhelming. The choral texture is rather muted, and while the soloists are acceptable, the tenor is simply something that should not have happened: His voice and interpretation have "Milquetoast" written all over. Overall an unexciting rendition. Susskind's conducting is old-fashioned, which in itself is not a bad thing as it is quite faithful to the earlier conceptions of Baroque performances, but the vocal instruments under his conduction are simply not up to par to deliver a satisfactory performance.
  • Even if you have other performances - get this one!

    Beautiful. One of the best renditions of the Messiah I've had the privilege to hear. I try to catch a performance every year here in NY, and now I can listen to it anytime and feel like I'm in the concert hall. The majesty and passion are all here. Just wonderfully done.
  • Great Work, not that great recording

    By lostjunkie108
    Handel's Messiah is one of the best works of music, but the overall produs=ction of this record wasnt great. The sound quality stank, and none of the instruments or singers were all that impressive. If you want a copy of Messiah, try Academy of Saint Martins-in-the-fields, or the London Symphony, but at $7.99 for this, you cant beat it.
  • Times have changed

    By BeeBopBoy
    This is a rather tired version of Handel’s oratorio performed by a fully employed London Philharmonic Orchestra. This is definitely NOT a version for lovers of the early music movement. The recording is peculiar because the balance is such that you may think you are actually sitting inside the harpsichord, the only period instrument to be found here among the 101 welling violins. This recording should be purchased if only to remind us how greatly musical tastes have changed in the past 20 years. A better bet would be to spend the extra cash for Christopher Hogwood’s, 1991 pioneering recording with the beautiful Carolyn Watkinson, soprano and a proportioned orchestra with period instruments. Better yet, why not spring for “Hogwood Conducts Handel’s Oratorios” and discover some additional music you may find just as moving and lovely!
  • The London Philharmonic and the best of Handel.

    Plan an evening in front of a warm fire. Re-familiarize yourself with the subject matter (possibly read Luke chapter 2 and Isaiah 9 and 53 from any Bible) Then, sit back and enjoy the history, passion and hope of this amazing story. The London Philharmonic performs the very best Hanel's Messiah in my opinion. This is a special value. Worth many times the price. Enjoy.
