Reviews

'L'Allegro would with little doubt be one of my desert island pieces, all the most so after listening to this first truly complete recording of Handel's delectable pastotal ode. Enjoy!' (Gramophone)

'Unfailingly excellent' (BBC Music Magazine)

'One of Handel's loveliest English works, full of the pastoral delights of Acis and Galatea and some of his most sublime vocal inspirations' (The Sunday Times)

'This pure Baroque beauty is a dramatic piece rich in short, tuneful airs, each more beautiful than the last. Few Handel vocal works give me such enduring pleasure' (Classic FM Magazine)

'Robert King's affection for the work shines out from every number' (Classic CD)

'This delightful set … must surely rank as one of the discs of the year' (The Scotsman)

'A first rate work … This is easily one of the best of the year and perhaps the best Handel recording of 1999' (Goldberg)
