    Listening to yet another of my recordings of German Christmas carols dating back to the 1970s, this one with Hermann Prey and the Tölzer Knabenchor.

    It's that time of year again - who doesn't love Messiah? And, this recording is wonderful!

    ^ I have that one. Interesting that the alto parts are shared by a female alto and a countertenor.

    Tonight I am listening to this one. Pretty good and, curiously, it has two sopranos.

    Came in a Handel big box download from Amazon. Messiah tracks are numbered in the upper 200s, so it was a big set. Decent Messiah set actually.

    As wonderful as this recording is, and it is rated 9/10 on the Messiah site, I find it a bit strange.

    For an all around great Messiah recording, this one is pretty hard to beat:


    This and the one above (Pearlman) are my two favorites!

    Listened to this one a couple more times and really like it. Can be had as digital download (along with a lot of other Handel works) for 99 cents on Amazon in either of these downloads:

    or https://www.amazon.com/Big-Handel-Or...handel+big+box

    ^ Four more times through the Somary Messiah set today. It is awesome. I am putting it in my top three with Pearlman and Solti's sets.

    An excellent Beethoven Ninth from Leipzig, a great note of optimism for the first day of 2019:.
