The transcendent glory of Handel's beloved classic Messiah is taken to new heights on Sir Andrew Davis’s majestic, must-hear rendition, recorded live in December 2015. Davis and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra make use of all the colours available from the modern orchestra to underline the mood and meaning of the individual movements, sung here by an acclaimed cast of soloists. Without detracting from the innate power of the original, the conductor’s score calls for moments of drama, pathos and even, sometimes, whimsy.
