AllMusic Review by

Academy of St. Martin in the Fields' Messiah: Excerpts may not contain all of Handel's masterworks, but it has all of the highlights that any casual listener will know or need, and it all sounds quite enticing -- rich, powerful, graceful, and elegant. Anyone who is a serious listener or connoisseur will find this lacking, but many listeners will be more than satisfied by this fine disc.
