George Friderik Handel
George Friderik Handel's oratorio "Messiah" is perhaps the most famous piece of classical music ever written. Over the decades, it has attracted major conductors and soloists to record it. Among the famous conductors are Malcolm Sargent, Thomas Beecham, Colin Davis, and Trevor Pinnock. On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will sample some of these famous recordings.
