Notes & Reviews:

Christopher Hogwood and The Academy of Ancient Music have made a number of distinguished recordings of the music of Handel. Handels most popular oratorio, Messiah, heads up this set of Handel works in which the 1985 recording of Athalia returns to the international catalog after an absence of several years. Esther and La Resurrezione round out his set, which presents all critically-acclaimed recordings!
