Notes & Reviews:

'L'Allegro, il Penseroso' marked an important stage in the development of the English oratorio. The music is breath-taking, the arias and ensembles full of exhilarating Italianate melodies. Masterful soloists and the brilliant Frankfurt Baroque Orchestra mount an outstanding performance.
