Notes & Reviews:

The highly atmospheric baroque Waldegg Castle once again serves as the perfect setting for a special musical event - this time with a performance of Handel's cantata Apollo e Dafne. The cantus firmus consort - under the experienced leadership of Andreas Reize - presented this dramatic cantata on historical instruments at the castle and in this way conveyed the musical spirit of Handel's time with the greatest possibility authenticity.

International Record Review
They both make the most of Handel's utterly delightful and sometimes poignant music. I think neither could be fairly said to have an exceptionally beautiful voice, but they both sing with great skill and dramatic insight...on the whole this recording is very recommendable, not least for the delightful orchestral rarities.

BBC Music Magazine
Neatly cut with suites from a lost 'Dafne' opera and tailed by a cheerful chaconne, Handel's cantata is given lively context in a tautly-directed recording.
