HANDEL: The Messiah

From the sounds of Christmas carols drifting through the night air to the clang-clang of bells to the bustle of holiday shoppers, these are the familiar sounds of the holiday season. Some of the world’s greatest classical compositions have been inspired by this joyous and spiritual season, with none more moving than Handel’s extraordinary “Messiah.”

This volume of the NAXOS MUSICAL JOURNEY takes you inside Bavaria’s famed Benedictine Abbey Church for both an intimate and spectacular view of this holy architectural wonder. Handel’s profound music soars through the church on a wave of choral voices, echoing across the ages and across the world. This classic holiday favorite is as sacred and enduring as the Benedictine Abbey itself, with its religious paintings, ornate rococo design, altars, and three towering organs. This is music for the ages, to be enjoyed season after season.
