From the sounds of Christmas carols drifting through the night air to the clang-clang of bells to the bustle of holiday shoppers, these are the familiar sounds of the holiday season. Some of the world¹s greatest classical compositions have been inspired by this joyous and spiritual season, with none more moving than Handel¹s extraordinary "Messiah."

This volume of the NAXOS MUSICAL JOURNEY takes you inside Bavaria¹s famed Benedictine Abbey Church for both an intimate and spectacular view of this holy architectural wonder. Handel¹s profound music soars through the church on a wave of choral voices, echoing across the ages and across the world. This classic holiday favorite is as sacred and enduring as the Benedictine Abbey itself, with its religious paintings, ornate rococo design, altars, and three towering organs. This is music for the ages, to be enjoyed season after season!

    Great for the holidays

    Published by Barbara Greer on 19th Jul 2014

    This DVD runs often at my home during the holidays. Occasionally I even run it during the Summer to put me in that special holiday mood. I prefer the music to the still image video.
