It was a full concert, with a classical orchestra and accompanied singers. There were soloist as well as a choir of about 100 people.

I enjoyed the event.

This was one of the best interpretations of The Messiah that we have seen. The chorus was in very fine voice, and the musicians and featured singers were terrific.

Quotes & Highlights

“It has become an annual tradition for the Distinguished Concerts International organization to present a version of Handel’s _Messiah _ far outside the historically informed mainstream. As usual Jonathan Griffith will conduct a huge group of players and singers in the delicious symphony-orchestra arrangement that Eugene Goossens prepared for Thomas Beecham’s 1959 RCA recording of the work, which has about the same relationship to other _Messiah_s that chocolate layer cake has to a Ritz Cracker.” —The New York Times
