Notes & Reviews:

Handel's cantatas represent an important but until recently little-known area of his work. They were written during his time in Rome from 1707, and were intended for private use. They range from miniatures consisting of two arias, recitative and a basso continuo, to large scale works with all the drama of his operas, complete with named characters, a plot, and large orchestral forces. This CD contains the remarkable 'Tra le fiamme', written for Cardinal Pamphilj, who provided the text. Marco Vitale will record the first ever cycle of all Handel's cantatas -- many never have been recorded before.

Gramophone Magazine
"The dialogue between True's voice and Heidi Gröger's viola da gamba is delightful, and the comparatively weightless lower textures caused by the use of 8-foot violone feels absolutely right.
