"Excellent" Handel "Messiah" from NY

Tune in Thursday at 7PM for the first of several "Messiahs" this month on IPR - this one a highly praised concert by the New York Philharmonic under Gary Thor Wedow. The New York Times called it "excellent, with "a fleet, lithe orchestral performance, aptly complemented by the buoyant singing of the chorus." The Times also raved about some of the soloists, and said that "the audience, standing for the Hallelujah Chorus, applauded and cheered at the end of that section."
