(5 out of 5 stars)
"I bought this without having read any reviews and was very pleasantly surprised. It has a 45 minute documentary which was both informative and interesting (including the filming of a visit to to Handel's birth place at Halle).
The performance is as authentic as one would wish, and the commitment from all the performers was first class.
This early oratorio tells the story between the crucifixion of Christ and his resurrection. It has the story told from the persepective of the metaphysical world, both a good angel and lucifer are cast, and also three followers of Christ are also invloved, from the physical plain.
The set includes with the DVD two CDs making it a bargain.
Don't hestitate to buy it.
