Notes & Reviews:

This is a reissue of a successful recording from the Brilliant Classics catalogue of the Cantata Apollo e Dafne, as well as the instrumental Suite from The Alchymist.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Preceding the cantata is a set of nine instrumental pieces, pirated from Handel's opera Rodrigo and used as interludes for a 1710 London revival of Ben Jonson's play, The Alchymist. That set of "incidental music" was given its first, and still best, recording back in 1980 for Oiseau-Lyre. For a while it reappeared in a short-lived Hogwood-Handel omnibus, but it must be hard to find now. Wentz gives a perfectly satisfactory account of it. For Apollo & Dafne two recordings really stand out from the crowd and demand consideration.
