Notes & Reviews:

For this recording the London Handel Players have selected their particular favorites from Alcina, Solomon and Semele, the first two of which are introduced by their overtures in arrangements by Handels own publisher, John Walsh. Dances from Semele and Alcina are also included. Of their recording of Handel's 'Trio Sonatas,' Op. 5 (SOMMCD044), International Record Review wrote, "I find all the performances well-nigh perfect...the music is absolutely gorgeous."
