About

Regarded as one of the most important recording events of the late twentieth century, Christopher Hogwood’s iconic recording of Handel’s Messiah is considered to be one of the finest of all time.

Decca has gone back to the original tapes to make a definitive transfer and proudly presents the first ever “period performance” and multi-award-winning recording for the first time at 24-bit / 96kHz.

The High-Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-ray disc, in particular, affords an unprecedented opportunity to hear the recording at this resolution.

Presented with original cover design in hard back book presentation and sung text with translations in German and French, the booklet also includes Hogwood’s original in-depth analysis of The Messiah, a note by Anthony Hicks, a reappraisal by Lindsay Kemp and Archive Photos.
