About this Recording

HANDEL, G.F.: Messiah (Trinity Choir and Orchestra, Burdick)

Few people realize that Messiah received its New World première at Trinity Church in October 1770—only twenty-eight years after it was written. Today Trinity Church is extraordinarily fortunate in having a first-rate ensemble of singers, all of whom are soloists in their own right. These performances of Messiah afford us the perfect opportunity to showcase these performers and to share their distinctive talents with you. Each soloist has been chosen for the unique vocal and interpretive gifts they bring to each recitative and aria. We hope you’ll agree with our choices, be moved by their artistry, and rejoice at their accomplishment.
