"For those who treasure Messiah, Thomas' version is revelatory."

- Bay Area Reporter

"One of the best-sounding recordings I've heard in the last few years is Handel's Messiah performed by Jeffrey Thomas and the American Bach Soloists (Delos DE-3360 CD). The sound is spectacularly natural, with realistic dynamics and a wonderful sense of space. If you haven't heard it, I recommend it highly."

- Stereophile

Read Notes about the Recording had this to say about a preview of the recording...

When the official release comes out, don't even think about it—just go buy it. It was recorded in the 1800-seat Mondavi Symphony Hall in California, which [audio engineer John] La Grou reckons ranks as one of the great performance spaces. His recording offers some proof of that conviction...

The CD-R La Grou sent me consists of unedited, unprocessed master takes...there's an honesty and excitement in these takes that's all too frequently missing from "official" recordings...

And the voices!...The American Bach Soloists shine on "Glory to God," and there's a spectacular performance from the countertenor on "He Was Despised."
