    most excellent.
    a hard nut to crack. sounds like it was written at an age decades past that of Schubert's at the time of writing this or even at his death.

    On Christmas day I listened to this album where you get Peter Mattei singing carols, faint gasp.

    Continuing my seasonal Messiah collection palyback, the newer Dunedin Consort using very small group has the advantage of SACD format sound and very good performance, the 1742 Dublin version has more soprano parts

    The landmark Hogwood Messiah defined the way we would perform modern baroque religious works with clear no vibratto vocals (Emma Kirkby etc) and AAM using original instruments perfromance practice

    Two more great Messiahs both featuring use of counter tenors for more variety in vocal tones, the deluxe Christie shown comes in sweet digibook format worth a few dollars more, also now available for reduced price "gold" series release.

    Please check out the recent Layton Messiah (pix 1) it is a great one many don't know about.......

    Never try to teach a pig to sing. You will waste your time and you will annoy the pig.
