TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 15 November 2010
Exceptionally beautiful rendition by Leppard - a connoisseur of Handel and very knowledgeable about authentic performance practices even though this is a modern instrument performance. The musical flow is fantastic here both in the recitatives and in the arias and the choruses. The handling of the score is very finely articulated with a finely balanced delicacy as well as power and virile robustness when the music calls for it. All the soloists are fantastic, truly immersed in their parts with great feeling and rare tone quality on everyone's part. Truly exceptional. These performances make the Christophers' authentic instrument version on the Coro label seem like muddy water.This is an all around splendid performance. It has been re-issued in a Warner box set at a budget price along with Messaih and some Handel opera arias see: Handel Messiah / Samson Arias From Rinaldo & Other Operas
