Two of the most distinguished names in Baroque music perform Handels joyous and uplifting oratorio.

For many, Christmas begins with the final few bars of a traditional festive Messiah performance. But its more than just a British seasonal fixture its a landmark of European culture. With Trevor Pinnock at the harpsichord, the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra and a youthful international cast, itll come up as fresh as new paint.

Pinnock has an impressive history with Messiah: his 1988 recording was pioneering in its approach and has since become a classic. Three decades on, his vision of this great choral retelling of the life of Christ has matured and deepened, but these are performers who always have something distinctive to say in a masterpiece that always has something new to offer.
