Australian pressing. Features 5 total tracks. Decca. 2005.
The Handel and Haydn Society is America's oldest performing arts organization still in existence, having been founded in 1815 - a mere six years after the death of Haydn himself. With this recording of his arias and cantatas for solo soprano the society has done the musical world a great service: this is lovely music lovingly performed... I found this a most enjoyable recording, one I won't tire of hearing in a long time.
