Sorry, I haven't seen it, but...
1 November 2001 | by bpofukSee all my reviews

I just have to correct Marcus Berg, because he did big factual mistake commenting Messiah, which could confuse people who don't know. The original language of Haendel's oratorio Messiah IS English! Haendel spent the most of his fruitful years as composer in London, where he also composed this great oratorio. By the way, for everybody who loved the music, the "sound track" CD is out on Deutsche Grammophon Archiv Produktion (471 341-2 AH2).
