"A Fabulous Adventure Into A Wonderland Of Sound!"
5 stars"

This DVD is one of the most beautiful and uplifting I have ever experienced and experienced is the right word. I really do experience it, not just watch and listen.

The voices are glorious, the singers seem so emotionally attached to the piece that they drew us in too. The soaring interpretation of the Hallelujah Chorus brings tears to my eyes, it reaches out and grabs me!

If you love this piece please buy this version. You won't be disappointed!


Includes :- -Interviews -Biographies Throughout each year, and especially at Christmas time, thousands of people enjoy the experience of hearing Handel's most famous work, Messiah. It not only tells the story of Jesus Christ, but it also considers the whole of human experience - hope and fulfilment, suffering and death, resurrection and redemption - which has resonances with us all. Many of the arias and choruses (especially the 'Hallelujah' chorus) are some of the most well-known and beloved pieces of classical music. Now ABC Classics releases Australia's first complete recording of Handel's Messiah. Not only that, but when this recording was made, in St Patricks Chapel, Manly in Sydney, it was also visually recorded. Sumptuous footage of soloists, choir, orchestra and conductor in this perfect environment make for a unique product Features some of ABC Classics most renowned soloists (including Sara Macliver and Teddy Tahu Rhodes), the choir Cantillation, and the new Baroque ensemble, Orchestra of the Antipodes (on period instruments) conducted by Antony Walker.
