Keith Bruce, The Herald

★★★★

It is not just the singers, but also the fine continuo players, and pitch-perfect baroque strings, led by Huw Daniel, who all have distinct, audible and individual contributions to make in a Dunedin Consort performance of Handel’s masterpiece…

Simon Thompson, Seen and Heard International

The cumulative effect, therefore, was […] powerful enough, in fact, to get the polite Edinburgh audience cheering, something they very rarely do, particularly in the Queen’s Hall!

Dunedin’s Messiah and Matthew Passion – Recommended by BBC Music Magazine

We would naturally recommend our own recordings of Handel’s Messiah and Bach’s Matthew Passion, but are always delighted when others agree with us. A special edition from BBC Music Magazine focusing on the lives and essential works of The Great Composers lists both our Messiah and Matthew Passion as the recommended recordings.

Handel’s Messiah and Bach’s Matthew Passion represent two fundamental pillars of the Western European music tradition. Our recording of Handel’s Messiah won the Gramophone Award in 2007 for best baroque vocal recording and a MIDEM award. Bach’s Matthew Passion is not short of accolades receiving the best recording 2008 by High Fidelity magazine.

Dunedin’s success on both the platform and the recording market is testament to the passion and commitment of our artists.

[…] the freshest, most natural, revelatory and transparently joyful Messiah I have heard for a very long time.

It’s all too easy to take Handel’s Messiah for granted. This extraordinary and enduring work has become a staple of the Christmas season, with its glorious arias and choruses ringing out in concert halls around the worldBut with Dunedin Consort, it never loses its magic. Performed by our lithe ensemble of just 12 singers and 15 instrumentalists, Handel’s music remains as crisp, powerful and uplifting as it was at is first performanceChristmas just wouldn’t be complete without it.
