Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : The Triumph of Time and Truth, oratorio, HWV 71
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

On their third disc for Delphian, Ludus Baroque and five stellar soloists bring to life Handel's rarely-heard final oratorio The Triumph of Time and Truth - a remarkable Protestant re-casting of a work written fifty years earlier to a text by the young composer's Roman patron Cardinal Pamphilj. The work, neglected by centuries of scholarship on account of its hybrid origins, here proves an extraordinary feast of riches, and the ideal vehicle for Richard Neville-Towle's carefully assembled cast of exceptional soloists, vigorous, intelligent chorus and an orchestra made up from some of the UK's leading period instrumentalists.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Now, all this means that there are things that serious Handel collectors will want sorted out. Alas, the booklet for this new release contains a maundering essay on Handel's religious and moral ideas. This new Delphian recording uses the expanded 1758 version. On that count, it is as much complementary as competitive to the Hyperion recording. So, this new recording is definitely of value.
