Notes & Reviews:

Queen Caroline was an emblematic female figure of the 18th century: the wife of King George II of England, a woman of great beauty, a champion of science and the arts, Caroline d'Ansbach was also the friend and patroness of Handel. The latter was entrusted with the solemn music composed for the grand ceremonies that marked the reign. This recording featuring William Christie and Les Arts Florissants brings together, for the first time, three works underlining the strong link between the monarch and her favorite composer.
