Price: £17.35

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous!, 11 May 2015
I was delighted to hear that McCreesh and the Gabrielis were recording Handel again,for the first time in far too long, and the results don't disappoint - far from it. Fabulously detailed playing, invigorating and exciting choral singing and a superlative cast of soloists. There are too many high points to list, but Gillian Webster's beautifully nuanced, expressive singing has to get a mention.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect Christmas disc, 4 Dec. 2013
This recording is like an aural version of my perfect Christmas. Traditional, yet still fresh and uncliched. Stunning singing of christmas music both familiar and unfamiliar - a real treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and moving, 4 Dec. 2013
This recording is one of the most immensely powerful recordings of an undeniably powerful work. Whilst the Britten recording will remain in anyone's collection, this is a must-buy for me and I recommend it wholeheartedly. Soloists and chamber orchestra provide beautifully reflective moments in complete contrast to wildly exciting, visceral sections with the full orchestra and stunning massed choir. For me, John Mark Ainsley is the most moving soloist - I challenge anyone to listen to this recording whilst looking at the war photography in the booklet without being moved to tears. A truly humbling experience and another epic release from Paul McCreesh and Gabrieli.
