Choir of the English Concert
The English Concert
Nelson’s chosen version of the score reflects Messiah’s evolution over the period from 1741 (the original autograph) to the early 1750s, when a “standard” version of the oratorio took shape. In addition, the CDs offer eight bonus tracks – alternative versions of now-familiar arias. Joining John Nelson are the historically-informed orchestra and choir of The English Concert, soprano Lucy Crowe, countertenor Alex Potter, tenor Michael Spyres and bass Matthew Brook. As The Times wrote of the performance: “From shadowy strings in ‘For behold, darkness shall cover the earth’ to gilded trumpets and exuberant timpani in the final chorus, this was Handel straight from the opera house: dramatic and eloquent.”
