Notes & Reviews:

"Saul", composed in order to recoup losses from the disastrous opera season of 1738 was designed as a musical extravaganza to take the public by storm. Calling for an enormous orchestra including double-bass kettledrums borrowed from the Tower of London, numerous soloists and choir, Handel succeeded in producing a dramatic masterpiece. -H&B
