Notes & Reviews:

This 3-CD set offers a representative selection of the most popular choruses from Handel's biblical oratorios, starting with the Messiah, whose choruses fill a whole CD; the "Hallelujah Chorus" represents the ultimate in Baroque oratorio splendor. The other two CDs contain the most important choruses from four other oratorios, and represent an effective cross-section of the works. This fine Handel collection includes a detailed booklet containing summaries of the actions and complete texts of the vocal parts.
