Messiah, the glorious masterpiece Handel composed in just 21 days, has inspired and enthralled audiences and singers worldwide for centuries. Appearing with guest conductor Patrick Walders are the “sparkling clear and vivid soprano” (Boston Herald) Sharla Nofziger, “the mezzo we have been waiting for” (Los Angeles Times) Delores Ziegler, tenor Nathan Davis - “clear round tones and rich vibrato” (New York Stringer), and baritone Phillip Cutlip - “sensual voice and magnetic presence” (Washington Times). Messiah “has fed the hungry and clothed the naked, fostered the orphan, and enriched succeeding managers of Oratories more than any single musical production in this or any other country.” —Charles Burney “This is a work of genius.” —Johannes Brahms
