Notes & Reviews:

'An unfailingly delightful work, beautifully performed and recorded' (Gramophone)

'Une des plus délicieuses partitions du XVIII Siècle' (L'Avant Scene Opera, France)

'A first-class Handel release' (American Record Guide)

'McFadden is a loving Galatea, Ainsley a charming Acis, and Covey-Crump a finely polished Damon. Michael George is magnificent - a nimble but ferocious Polyphemus whose every note is absolutely centred' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)
