Notes & Reviews:

This CD features Handel arias in 18th century arrangements for recorder and basso continuo. The arias of the 'newest' Handel operas were analogous to pop hits and were played in all conceivable arrangements. They were demanding to play and even today require skilled recorder players. Stefan Temmingh has gathered various musician friends and colleagues to revive this fascinating repertoire.

"The sonics wonderfully reproduce and balance clanging psaltery, droning bassoon, and a variety of other sounds with the fine artistry of the soloist. The booklet notes (in German and English) intersperse exposition with comments from the recorder player, making for education, entertainment, and personalization of the program...This is a baroque house party you'll want to join!"-American Record Guide
