Handel's Messiah has been recorded many times and in many settings with various ensembles, and yet never loses any of its strength. This historic recording of Leonard Bernstein, the New York Philharmonic, and the Westminster Choir was made in the 1950s. With Bernstein at the podium the result is obviously dramatic, theatrical, and very intense. It is also a bit unorthodox as Bernstein used his own edition which regrouped and reordered the numbers into a "Christmas section" and an "Easter section."
