Notes & Reviews:

Taken from the soundtrack of the film 'God Rot Tunbridge Wells', this unforgettable collection of Handel's "hits" was rightly praised at the time for making Handel sound, well, like Handel, full of life and fury, and not the usual syrupy stodge served up by massed choirs of thousands. Mackerras insisted on hearing the Royal Fireworks Music (for instance) as it was written - for a veritable battery of wind and brass instruments, not to mention twenty side-drums.
