Notes & Reviews:

"...fine sonics, good soloists, and a full, rich choral sound..." "[Shaw], more than any other, achieves with modern instruments the airy textures and crisp articulations that Handel would have expected, and his superbly trained chorus matches the orchestra in lightness and fleetness." "...Telarc's digital recording is exemplary." -Opus
