"Superba gossröster snitslar sig genom sopranariorna såväl som genom körstämmorna - matchade av Toby Spence genomlysta countertenor i altariorna, vår tids svar på stjärnkastraten Guadagnini. Spritsigt elastiska tempi, studsande jubelkörer kontras av recitativ mättade med spänningsrik eftertanke. Exotiskt också att höra en tenor i Rejoice greatly."
"...Higginbottoms lättfotade Messias gör helt enkelt lyssnaren helfrälst..."
(Svenska Dagbladet)

"En strålande inspelning med fina solister"
(Opus)

Otta Jones, gossopran

Robert Brooks, gossopran

Iestyn Davies, countertenor

Toby Spence, tenor

Eamonn Dougan, bas

(1751 version) (New College Oxford Choir, Academy of Ancient Music, E. Higginbottom)

Handel’s most popular and joyous oratorio, a work of unfailing melodic invention and dramatic expressiveness, has become almost a British national institution, regularly performed by all manner of choirs and orchestras. This new recording provides the only modern re-
construction of Handel’s unique London performances in 1751, when he used boy treble voices not only for the choruses but for the arias as well. It is both a celebration of the British chapel choir tradition and a window onto a particular time and place in the history of Handel’s own performances of his masterpiece.
