Handel's Messiah has become a Christmas classic regardless of the fact that it was first written for Easter. But I digress. The piece is, obviously, tremendous. If you've never seen it live, you're doing your ears wrong. If you want the conventional, solid route, go to Seattle Symphony's performances. But this performance promises to be excellent in its own way, guided by the noted early-music conductor Stephen Stubbs. He'll "take a revolutionary approach to Handel’s Messiah, returning to the composer’s own practice of embedding soloists in the choir." Team Stubbs! JG
