Notes & Reviews:

"We can just sit back and revel in the specially appealing world of Handel's choral music, appreciating these anthems for their simplicity and grace, their melodic "rightness" and rhythmic catchiness, and these performers' obvious enjoyment in their natural singability. The sound, from--where else?--the Chapel Royal at London's St. James' Palace, is vibrant and well-balanced between instruments and voices, both a tribute to and a faithful representation of both music and period." -Classics Today
