Emma Kirkby singing Handel doesn't need too much urging upon an unsuspecting public! Here she is—the world's favourite 'early music' soprano on top form with another delectable selection of arias from some of Handel's lesser-known stage works, accompanied once again by Roy Goodman. Volume 1, CDA66860, was issued in 1996. In case anybody wants to know, Emma's own favourite track from this new disc is the Berenice aria, 'Chi t'intende'. But everybody will have their own favourites.
