On this Easter Sunday morning, what better way to celebrate it than with George Frideric Handel?
Lovely music for the holiest day of the Christian faith.
If you’d like to hear the full “Messiah” oratorio, my favorite rendition after sixty-plus years of listening to it remains that by Colin Davis with the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, recorded in 1966. The soloists were Heather Harper, soprano; Helen Watts, alto; John Wakefield, tenor; and John Shirley-Quirk, bass. You’ll find the full recording on YouTube, and it’s also available on CD. IMHO, it’s seldom been equalled and never surpassed.
May the blessings of Easter be with and for all of you.
