Promised for several Christmases and never quite delivered thanks to a variously infuriating string of technical malfunctions. This year, I’m going to Leipzig to hear the piece performed live. With real people. And hopefully real serpents.
But. For the restivus, Spotify provides a failsafe way for you to hear the only best recording. You can listen for free with an account and choose to upgrade for access to loads of the music you want and a ton of stuff you didn’t even know you’ve been missing all these years. $9.99 a month is quite a lot cheaper than a flight to Germany. So there’s that.
Anyway – without further ado – the Messiah alternative to end all Messiah alternatives. Enjoy!
