Reviews

'Deborah contains some of the most glorious music Handel ever wrote. Even if many of the numbers have been recycled from earlier works, the invention is still staggering. Handel devotees can thus amuse themselves spotting the tunes while everyone else can revel in the sumptuous scoring and the sheer vitality and humanity of the piece, all superbly conveyed in Robert King's recording' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

'Superb … The recording is another of these inspired ventures by Hyperion into music we ought to know better' (BBC Record Review)

'An important addition to the Handel discography. Handelians will revel in its rediscovery' (The Sunday Times)

'lt's impossible not to get caught up in the exhilarating flow of music. A must for all Handel lovers' (Fanfare, USA)
