5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 27 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic recording of a fantastic work by the young Handel. No interpretation is absolutely perfect, but this one is a reference in terms of musicality, sensitivity and expression. I bought this record in LP in the early 80s and then bought several copies of the CDs (friends to whom I lent them keep them! this is a sign). I still remember the intense emotion when I listened to it the first time - and is still the same. The booklet with translations of the original Italian text is useful and well made. The voices of the (young) Emma Kirkby, Patrizia Kwella and Carolyn Watkinson are superbly serving this music and the underlying text - an amazing story indeed! Sorry I have no words except to say this is probably one of my favourite recordings out of many.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Devil of a Performance 28 Jan 2012
By Kelvin Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Differing from other oratorios in this set, Resurrection is sung in Italian, and consists entirely of soloist and ensemble singing. No chorus here. The story line follows events from Good Friday until Easter Sunday, from the viewpoint of Satan, Mary Magdalene, and St. John. Again, the performances are stellar. But what distinguishes this work is the number of "pop" tunes throughout the work. This is gorgeous songwriting on the part of the composer. I hate to compare, but of the baroque era composers, no one could top Handel and Vivaldi at coming up with crowd pleasing tunes. Yes, they both died poor and fell out of fashion, as good pop tunesmiths tend to do. But this work is a joy to listen to. David Thomas as Lucifer just steals the show. He is powerful, brilliantly precise, and executes those Baroque runs to perfection without losing the emotion and the drama of the role he is performing. Even though she doesn't have a starring role here, contralto Carolyn Watkinson turns in wonderful performances as well. A worthy addition to any Handel collection, and available as part of a 4 work, 8 disc set of Hogwood interpretations of Handel's Oratorios. Handel: Messiah / Athalia / Esther / La Resurrezione
