Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159856126X, Audio CD)

"Hendrickson Worship" introduces a new recording of Handel's "Messiah", from world-renowned conductor and composer, John Rutter and the Cambridge Singers. Remarkably, this is the first time John Rutter has recorded the "Messiah". Named on The Today Show as "the greatest living composer and conductor of choral music," Rutter is probably the most successful choral composer of his generation. Rutter's compositions are chiefly choral, and include Christmas carols, anthems, and extended works such as a Gloria and a Requiem. "Messiah" is being performed by the Cambridge Singers, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by John Rutter. The soloists are Joanne Lunn, Melanie Marshall, James Gilchrist, and Christopher Purves. The 2-CD set includes a 24-page-booklet with the text of "Messiah" and interspersed photos from the recording session, which will take place at All Hallows Gospel Oak, London.
