Cd -- September 2008
George Frideric Handel's Messiah is by far his most famous creation and among the most popular works in Western choral literature. Now a new recording from world-renowned conductor and composer John Rutter, the Cambridge Singers, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, brings this beloved oratorio to life in a 2-CD set that is sure to thrill anyone who loves music.
Although the work was conceived and first performed for Easter, it has become traditional to perform the Messiah oratorio during Advent — the prepatory period of the Christmas season. The work is also often heard at Eastertide, and selections containing resurrection themes are often included in Easter services.
