Handel: Joshua / Neumann, Gilchrist, Wolff, Poplutz, et al

Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : Joshua
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Handel himself was at the baton when Joshua was premiered in Covent Garden Theatre in London on March 9th, 1748. One day later the composer deposited the handsome sum of 250 pounds sterling at the Bank of England. Exactly 260 years later Peter Neumann and the Cologne Chamber Choir are presenting a fascinating new recording of the Old Testament subject. It is sung in the English original version, accompanied by international instrumental stars in the field of historical performance practice.

Gramophone Magazine
Collegium Cartusianum play stylishly and with impressive detail, and the choral singing and English pronunciation of the Cologne Chamber Choir is generally impeccableà
