Notes & Reviews:

Apollo's Fire has won critical acclaim and enjoyed Top 10 Billboard Classical chart success with their half-dozen releases on AVIE. Returning to their baroque roots, they offer a selection of works by Handel that showcase the Apollo's Fire chorus. The centerpiece of the album is the grand Dixit Dominus, written during the composer's early days in Rome. In a gesture to Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee year, Sorrell has chosen two works written for the monarch's forbearers: the "Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne" and "Zadok the Priest." As a bonus, Sorrell includes "The Lord Shall Reign" from the epic Israel in Egypt.

All Music Guide
Apollo's Fire is a delight and a treasure.
