5.0 out of 5 stars An earthly perfection 12 Feb 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Iestyn Davies' voice is a thing of beauty, both ethereal and commanding. 'Eternal source of light divine' is ravishing, barely of this world.
When I die, and if I get to heaven, the angels will have their work cut out to produce anything that sounds more wondrous.

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding performance - a joy to listen to! 20 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD
I was recently given this CD which is a glorious programme of arias from Handel's oratorios performed by the acclaimed counter tenor Iestyn Davies with The King's Consort directed by Robert King. It is a delight to be introduced to some of the lesser well known arias such as those from Esther (these are my particular favourites on the CD). After listening to this recording it's easy to understand why Iestyn Davies is in such demand!The recording has a wide variety of pieces comprising mainly solo arias together with more virtuosic ones (eg Up The Dreadful Steep Ascending, How can I Stay when love invites).There also two beautiful arias where Iestyn Davies is joined by the soprano Carolyn Sampson: Welcome as the Dawn of Day, Who Calls my Parting Soul from Death (the latter is a spine tingling performance) and both soloists sing with such sensual intensity.
The King's Consort as ever play with wonderful energy and style and also with great precision - they're on top form!
This recording should have a wide appeal to Baroque and Handel specialists, singers and players. It deserves to be a winner!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music, lovely to listen to 13 Feb 2014
By Karen
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This CD is a pure delight. The orchestra and soloists are brilliant - especially Iestyn davies who has a lovely, pure voice. It's not music that I am at all familiar with - but listening to it I felt I had known it all my life.

Highly recommended for those who like Handel or Baroque music in general - and an absolute must for fans of Iestyn Davies!
