Notes & Reviews:
This recording was prompted by a happy source discovery. In 2005 a music antiquarian offered for sale a hitherto almost unknown copyist's version of Mendelssohn's arrangement of Handel's dramatic work, which probably was made for the first English performance of the arrangement in 1869. The Handel Society in Gottingen acquired the source with the purpose of making known this arrangement and the goal was pursued at the Gottingen Handelfestpiele through the first modern performance of the work, an edition and the recording.
