This week on Sunday Night at the Opera, Handel’s Messiah.
Handel’s most famous oratorio, the Messiah, marks the beginning of the Christmas season all over the English speaking world. I’ll tell you the story behind it and play you highlights from the classic EMI recording with Sir Andrew Davis conducting the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and soloists Kathleen Battle, Florence Quivar, John Aler, and Samuel Ramey.
Tune in to Sunday Night at the Opera this Sunday at 9pm.
