Notes & Reviews:

Daniel Abraham leads the Maryland-based Bach Sinfonia, the Handel Choir of Baltimore and soloists in this, the first period-instrument recording of Handel's 'Alexander's Feast' made by an American ensemble or conductor. The triumphant splendor of John Dryden's ode set to music by Handel is vividly captured in this "vigorous performance [of] the work at a deliberate but bouncy clip, the music's energy intensified by clear articulation and a solid metrical pulse" (The Washington Post).
