Certainly one of the better-known classical music works, The Messiah by George Frederic Handel is celebrated here in a attempt to recreate the masterpiece much as it would have been heard in Handel
The 1.66:1 DVD is not anamorphically enhanced, and exhibits image quality that is suitable to the content of this disc. Colors are rich and fully saturated, with nicely rendered fleshtones and good balance. Images are generally sharp, though fine details are wanting and full shots of the orchestra or choir appear a bit smeared. Close-up shots are more detailed, but seem a bit flat. Minor shimmering and aliasing problems are evident, as well as occasional edge enhancement. (Suzanne Hodges)
