Product Information

Handel’s Messiah was composed in 1742 with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens. It tells the story of the life of Jesus Christ in three sections, from his birth to his death and eventual resurrection. Messiah has become one of the most recognized, appreciated and exhibited choral works during the Easter period.

“Paul McCreesh has fastidiously assembled solo singers with broad mainstream experience – a policy which has clearly paid off – and Handel’s choruses encapsulate all the vitality and litheness of the modern English vocal consort at its best. More than that, McCreesh is a natural dramatist and all his singers respond magnificently to the evangelical fervour which Jennens, if one senses not always Handel, envisioned.” – Gramophone

McCreesh’s acclaimed Messiah from 2004 is released in a new 24-bit remaster on CD and a Pure Audio Blu-ray Audio Disc with a Stereo 2.0 and a Dolby Atmos® mix.

Listen now in the new high-quality spatial listening experience of Dolby Atmos® on Apple Music, TIDAL HiFi Plus and Amazon Music Unlimited.
