 Wonderfully vibrant! July 24, 2015 By Mary C. (Howrah, Tasmania) See All My Reviews "A wonderful recording, so light and vibrant but with excellent control throughout. All performers are a delight, diction so clear. Lovely to hear the complete work with no exceptions. I have other recordings of the Messiah but this one is a clear favourite. Bryn Terfel and the Counter tenor are stand outs!" Report Abuse
