Notes & Reviews:

Hailed as the "first great English oratorio", Handel's Athalia has been unjustly neglected. Composed in 1733 on a libretto drawn from Racine's play abount the overthrow of the apostrate Queen Atahlia, Handel seized the opportunity to create some of his most vivid and striking musical portraits. -H&B
