Handel's masterpiece uses short texts from the Bible to tell the story of Christ's birth, death and resurrection. Imbued with a deep humanity and written with the imagination of a composer at the peak of powers, Messiah is intimate yet dramatic and includes some of Handel's best-loved music.

The bonus DVD features highlights from the performances in December 2006 and an interview with Sir Colin Davis.

Recorded December 2006, Barbican, London
