Notes & Reviews:

Sung in German with complete text and English translation included in the copious notes, Handel's oratorio on the biblical story of Saul was a collaboration between Handel and Charles Jennens, who provided the libretto. The libretto depicts King Saul's ignominious fall from greatness and the moral triumph of his successor King David. A beautiful performance in hybrid SACD format.
