The first Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne (Eternal Source of Light Divine) surely contains some of the most hauntingly beautiful opening lines written for any voice, let alone for a countertenor. Oddly enough, I first came to them via the rising Young Pretender (Iestyn Davies) who is, incidentially, my bet for the eventual successor once the throne becomes vacant, and who indeed also sings them beautifully. But only Andreas Scholl seems to have the ability to project these phrases straight to the solar plexus. They would perhaps have sounded slightly different had he sung them a decade ago, but the maturity, depth and expression of today's voice seep into your subconsciousness and you realise you wouldn't trade that for any extra youthful vocal vigour. We in the UK can only dream of combining Mr Scholl with Crispian Steele-Perkins, but I'm certainly not complaining at what is on offer here.... sublime countertenor + trumpet = perfection!

These Odes are "occasion" rather than religious songs, there's no great depth of meaning behind them other than the regal offerings they contain, so we can just sit back and relish the magnificent sounds of Handel's early work in England. I shall look forward to hearing much more of the young German bass, Andreas Wolf; his duet with Andreas Scholl (Let rolling streams their gladness show) is just fabulous. Of course, much of the credit is due to Handel, but the singers play their part to perfection.

The Vocalconsort Berlin produce a lovely, spirited, crisp, balanced and mellifluous tone, which is particularly effective in the Dixit Dominus. I don't know whether they work regularly with the Akademie, but the results here would suggest so, with orchestra and choir working in delicate harmony and sensitivity. Extracts can be heard on www.amazon.de

A sheer delight from start to finish.

I had never heard of Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne, let alone heard it in the concert hall. It was written in Handel's first years in Britain and seems to have been unfairly eclipsed by his later work. In my view it is a superb piece and I see no reason for its neglect, I just hope this recording finds the large public it deserves as it is beautifully sung and the recording is of exceptionally high quality. The cast is led by that star of the baroque, Andreas Scholl, who gets to sing some of the most attractive passages, but the other two soloists, Guilmette and Wolf match Scholl's high standard effortlessly.

The second work is Handel's Dixit Dominus, thrillingly sung by the Vocal Consort of Berlin and making an ideal coupling with the main work. I thoroughly recommend this CD to all admirers of Handel and the baroque.

A friend bought this for my wife Ann's birthday as (in part, he does love Handel) a little joke. We were so blown away by the music that we play it often and purchased this for another friend.

Andreas Scholl is amazing to listen to, well worth it if you like counter tenors and this type of Handelian music.
