Notes & Reviews:

"It is good to have William Christie's refined understanding of baroque music applied to a Handel opera... . Christie is very much concerned, it seems to me, with a smooth and generally rich texture and with delicacy of rhythmic shaping. His management of the recitative could hardly be bettered. ... Christie's exceptional delicacy of timing, his careful but always natural-sounding moulding of cadences and other critical moments in the score. Not many Handel interpreters show this kind of regard for such matters ... it is certainly a delight to hear Handel's music so lovingly nurtured and of course it helps the singers to convey meaning. The cast is very strong... " - Gramophone"
