Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : Jephtha
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

  • The complete Jephtha HWV 70, performed on period instruments according to the traditions of the time
  • Jephta was Handel's last work of great dimensions.
  • A 2012 concert recording from the church of the German UNESCO World Heritage Site Maulbronn Monastery.
  • Prof. Jurgen Budday is conductor, director of church music, music teacher and artistic director of Maulbronn Abbey.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
This is the latest in a long series of Handel oratorios that Budday has recorded (in public performances) for K&K's "Maulbronn Monastery Edition". Above all, tenor Hulett places very honorably. The chorus is particularly energetic and expressive this time. I have some reservations about the recorded sound. It is extraordinarily vivid, to be sure, with individual singers and even sections of the chorus, very precisely placed in the sonic spread. Ten recordings (in English) over the years, and so many of them of value - that's a good showing for Handel's profoundly moving, valedictory masterpiece.
