Notes & Reviews:

John Rutter and The City of London Sinfonia return to American Gramaphone with their second classical collection, this time with the compositions of Handel. The hour-long recording concentrates on the facet of Handel's work that is filled with life, color, drama, warmth and tunefulness, such as the selections from the Water Music. Adding to this unique focus are two harpsichord pieces played on what is believed to be Handel's own instrument, dating back to 1612 and just recently restored to ideal playing condition. Played by Harry Bicket, the royal instrument sounds glorious, its richness, sweetness and brilliance of tone-color making the The Handel Collection complete. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats
