    Oh yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! Oh yes!

    I don't know if it is sleep deprivation but listening to this...

    Oh No! On no, no, no, no, no! Oh No!

    Just discovered a whole new area of music. What's going to happen to my finances?

    Decided to get these two recorded versions of the Messiah and just received them today. Compared a few tracks. The Christie is much better with the baroque singing beautifully performed by both soloists and choristers and the music almost magically elicited by Christie. The Layton has an up-front harpsichord that distorts the effect; the harpsichord playing is beautiful but the bad sound mixing spoils the balance and is a bit annoying. Also the singing is too parochial-church idiomatic for my taste. YMMV.

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

    Purchased a few weeks ago, ranks near the top of Matthew Passion versions......but I really rarely listen to this genre of music.

    I purchased these 3 Suzuki boxsets a couple years ago on sale and still have not completed listening to all cantatas yet, something else always comes up to distract me......nice feature is all original individual booklets are included for each CD in boxset
