Reviews

  • A mediocre rendition of a great work

    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!

    This is the best recording of The Messiah I have heard!
  • Beautifully Done

    I listen to this a lot and have come to cherish Handel as a result. The music and recording is top notch, the singing is superb and Handel's music proves to me there is a God.
  • 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!

    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.

    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.
  • I LOVE Handel's Music!

    Excelent for Christmas. Recording was OK. I don't see how you could give this music a 1-star rating. Just a beautiful peice. AMEN. LOL
  • Great Work, not that great recording

    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.
