Greetings. Some time back, I obtained a 50s-era Columbia "Messiah"
conducted by Sargent, with the standard Huddersfield/Liverpool scenario,
and specifically with vocalists Morison, Thomas, Lewis, and Walker. Not
long after I obtained a similar iteration, with identical details, except
that Walker was replaced with Milligan.
Both appear to be 50s-era, and both are Columbia. Why did Sargent do
TWO "Messiah"s, with almost identical personnel, in such a close time
