Summary, etc.:
Stunning performance of the classic work by Handel. Just days before the event, Curtain Call Productions was alerted by its friends in Israel that the Upper Galilee Choir and Ranaana Symphonette Orchestra would be performing Handel's Messiah at Tabgha, the traditional site of Jesus Christ's miracle of feeding the five thousand along the Sea of Galilee. Working quickly and in close coordination with The Benedictine Monastery Tabgha, a professional video and audio team with 5 digital cameras and 16 microphones assembled in the sanctuary of the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fish and recorded this inspiring performance on December 14, 2002. The various recitatives, arias and choruses were filmed from 5 vantage points within the church, which allowed dynamic and visually stunning editing that truly compliments this timeless masterpiece. The music was expertly recorded and reproduced under the direction of music producer and consultant, John McCracken and senior recording engineer, Richard King of Sony Music. Mixed in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound at Sony Music Studios' state of the art facilities in New York City, this recording puts you smack in the middle of the choir and orchestra.
