“It has become an annual tradition for the Distinguished Concerts International organization to present a version of Handel's “Messiah” far outside the historically informed mainstream. As usual Jonathan Griffith will conduct a large group of players and singers in the delicious symphony-orchestra arrangement that Eugene Goossens prepared for Thomas Beecham's 1959 RCA recording of the work, which has about the same relationship to other “Messiahs” that chocolate layer cake has to a Ritz Cracker.” – The New York Times
