 Great performance December 30, 2013 By Zoran Rebrovic (Milton, MA) See All My Reviews "I have had a Harnoncourt 1973 recording for ages and for this Christmas I wanted to try a new one. I have several Suzuki cantatas and knowing how good they are I have ordered this Oratorio. I am so glad I did because I never knew there would be such a difference. Suzuki is such a joy to listen to, the recording is lively and inspired. Great singers, great instrumentalists, excellent recording. You almost want to dance listening to it." Report Abuse
