Handel Messiah, Part the First: Chorus, For unto us a Child is born

"I cannot remember a Messiah presentation as uniformly 'spot-on' as this year's by Ivars Taurins' Tafelmusik Chamber Choir and Baroque Orchestra." -The Globe and Mail

Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir present an intimate and stirring performance of the baroque masterpiece Handel's Messiah. This 2-CD recording of the full score on period instruments features a stellar cast of soloists. Tafelmusik presents this baroque masterpiece with the spirit and vitality of Handel's own 18th-century productions. "Superhuman", "spot-on", "crisp" and "inspired" are just a few of the words critics have used to describe Tafelmusik's Messiah. A perennial favourite with audiences and critics alike, Tafelmusik's Messiah has garnered glowing reviews year after year.
