 Excellent Performance April 2, 2013 By Carl B. (Ypsilanti, MI) See All My Reviews "We're very satisfied with this disc. The recording is crisp, soloists are competent and the tempi are reasonable, as opposed to the many these days, that are frantic. Don't expect the Messiah, but it's a nice work." Report Abuse
