5.0 out of 5 stars Blissful!, 10 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Half of the tracks on this CD are from Handel's great work, 'The Messiah'. The other seven tracks are from several of his lesser-known oratorios. McKellar's beautiful, fluid voice is far more pleasing to the ear than most tenors of today. His performance of the aria from 'Tolomeo' must rate as one of the most romantic ever recorded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Background briefing, 10 Jun. 2012

This review is from: Brief Lives (Paperback)
This is a delightful bedside book by an author who has known almost everyone of consequence over a lifetime of (respectable) journalism. He insists that he is not writing 'memoirs' but these snippets about famous figures in the UK flesh out what is already known about them , revealing insights into temperament, character and, sometimes, motivation.
