Deluxe two CD + DVD edition features the complete Messiah on two compact discs as well as a bonus DVD with behind-the-scenes footage of the making of this landmark recording, interviews with Mack Wilberg, and insight into the fascinating history of Handel’s Messiah. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square present the triumphant and angelic sound of George Frideric Handel’s masterpiece Messiah. This album features some of the very best soloists in the world, including Bryn Terfel, Sonya Yoncheva, Rolando Villazón, and Tamara Mumford. Taking over two years to record, the choir conductor, Mack Wilberg, has painstakingly captured an awe-inspiring version of arguably the best choral work ever written. The attention to every detail is impeccable, the vocal performances are unforgettable, and the “Hallelujah” chorus performed by the 360-member Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the 85-member Orchestra at Temple Square will long be considered one of the best versions ever recorded.
