Notes & Reviews:

'Handel Arias' is Gauvin's fifth recording for ATMA and features arias from Handel's London oratorios inlcuding 'Messiah', 'Semele', 'Samson', 'Jephta and Solomon', among others. Also included is the gorgeous aria, "Lascia ch'io pianga", from the opera 'Rinaldo'. She is joined by conductor/harpsichordist Alexander Weimann and his newly-formed ensemble 'Tempo Rubato'.

BBC Music Magazine
Flautist Grégoire Jeay's obbligato in 'Sweet bird that shun'st the noise of folly' (L'Allegro) is delectable, while Gauvin's impeccable coloratura and sharp-sweet-creamy raspberry ripple soprano fit this aria like a designer glove.

Sunday Times
Her glinting soprano, bright-edged yet deliciously rounded and sensual, is used with rare understanding for character......The highlight is the Queen of Sheba’s Will the Sun Forget to Streak, fabulously sung.......
