Notes & Reviews:

This new recording is a new installment in a series which is quickly establishing itself as one of the most ambitious and prestigious projects of today: the Complete Cantatas of Handel. It offers further proof of the vocal genius of Handel. The high level of performance (on historic instruments) and presentation (20 page booklet offering liner notes of great interest and insight) is continued in this new issue.

Gramophone Magazine
Fillide's 'Fiamma bella' is sung enchantingly by Stefanie True (worthy winner of the 2011 London Handel Singing Competition). Klaartje van Veldhoven's voice has a few shades more bite, which is ideal for the clarity of contrast between the two characters...Contrasto Armonico's slow-burning series continues to furnish Handelian food for thought.

MusicWeb International, June 2012
The dacapos. What a relief!...A project like this can't be appreciated enough. Handel is generally considered a master in depicting human emotions, and that clearly comes to the fore in his cantatas. The performers have managed to display that quality in these recordings.
