Dunedin Consort / John Butt - Handel: Messiah (Dublin Version, 1742) album download

This recording of Messiah by the Dunedin Consort is based on a reconstruction of the original version premiered in Dublin in 1742. The Dublin version is rarely performed because the composer had simplified parts in deference to the vocal limitations of some of the local soloists, because it is not as complete as later versions of the score and because revisions Handel made after the first performance have become standard.

The Dunedin Consort's Dublin version of Messiah was Linn's fastest selling album of 2006 and was described in many publications as the top choice Messiah for 2006. com and selected in The Scotsman's 'Top Ten classical music moments of 2006'. This sought-after recording was also a winner at the 2007 Gramophone Awards
