Of all the "Messiahs" lit by the laser beam in the last decade, this is by far the most radical in its "authenticity"...there is plenty of fresh air about this recording, and I welcome it to the catalogue...
"David van Asch is especially superb in his bass solos."
"This version of the Messiah must rank among the finest"
"Certainly anyone on a budget who wants a period instrument version need look no farther."
"Probably the least expensive recording of the work.... but it clearly competes with the best."
