Very rare, and only a few left in existence!
Sir John Elliot Gardiner and the musicians he hires succeed (again) in producing Handel of outstanding interpretive quality and beauty. It is, of course, Handel that one admires. Hearing this lesser-performed work will delight any admirer of Handel, or, really, any sentient being. The penultimate track, the duet "As steals the morn..." is ineffably beautiful and joyous. One cannot imagine a voice better suited than Kwella's for this work, and the others' match her performance.
