On this recording for ABC Classics, Antony Walker leads the Australian vocal ensemble Cantillation and the Orchestra of the Antipodes in a historically informed reading of Handel 's Messiah that is closely based on the autograph. Considering how many other versions Handel made of this work and how it has been further adapted over the centuries, often for enormous forces with exaggerated effects, it has become necessary for scholars and early music performers to present streamlined versions that eliminate the later accretions to better reflect the composer's earliest intentions.
This may not be an original Messiah -- which performance truly is? This lean ensemble follows Walker 's generally spry tempos with ease and delivers the most overwrought counterpoint with a light, transparent tone that makes the long passages of sixteenth notes seem effortless. Walker allows sufficient ornamentation and improvisational freedom in the arias, but on the whole the performance is not overly embellished and it feels clean and uncluttered.
Yet beyond technical aspects, the music is wonderfully expressive and in many instances quite thrilling to hear, especially in the brisk choruses.
