If you find yourself wanting to buy Handel's Messiah, do not purchase the Sir Georg Solti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra version. In addition to being one of the most expensive interpretations on iTunes ($20), the soloists suck. (Exception: Kiri te Kanawa's voice is lovely. As always.)
Why didn't I get the London Symphony Orchestra version? Not only is it $8 less, it's a MUCH better interpretation. Why why why?
Never again will I not shop around first.
So... If anyone out there happens to have a good recording...
I'd love to have a copy.
I hesitate to shell out for the other one... Dad would be less than pleased, I think.
