Hallelujah, Actually

March 6, 2013

It has been a long while since this critic listened to the English and German composer George Frederick Handel’s Messiah. Unfortunately overused in popular culture, the piece has its charms when not played too loudly or severely. I particularly like this version, Helmuth Rilling and the Bach-Collegium Stuttgart, because it does not overly demand attention. This is the Hallelujah chorus played the right way!
