This is one recording that you simply have to have. It goes without saying that this is an amazingly talented bunch of soloists (David Daniels! DAVID DANIELS! ), and the orchestra and choir never let them down. Somehow it's the phrasing that sets this recording apart. There's also an all-too-rare understanding of Handel that just streams out of this. Both these CDs have been on constant 'repeat' since I received them. I urge you to get yourself a copy.

Overall I am disappointed with this recording. Some of the songs are performed very well but others sound heavy handed and I don't really like the use of a counter-tenor. It doesn't have the consistently delicate touch of this version...
