Notes & Reviews:

"McGegan is perhaps more than any other conductor responsible for the resurgence in Handel’s popularity, especially his operas, and these recordings all have a sense of the historically important and creditable. The singing, needless to say, is outstanding across the board. Coupled with the fine sound and creative booklet, typical of most HM productions, it becomes a winner all around and something of an essential item for Handel lovers." -Audiophile Audition (audaud.com)
