Highlights from three Handel operas...reveal Jacobs's operatic pedigree. and although La Petite Bande plays well, it's a reminder of how much more instrumental verve Jacobs has brought to his own recordings as an opera conductor. And there has to be Bach: highlights from the Passions and the B minor Mass, showing why Jacobs was the natural heir to Alfred Deller.
