Notes & Reviews:

Handel shares his anniversary year with two other composers who hold a prominent place in the musical pantheon, Henry Purcell (born 1659) and Josef Haydn (died 1809). This new boxed set from Virgin Classics (3 CDs for the price of 1!) unites these three masters with a work by each of them in honor of St. Cecilia, the patron saint of music.
