Editorial Reviews

Handel s musical illustration of Dryden s Alexander s Feast, first performed in 1736, was a critical
and popular success. Twice a year some of the UK s finest baroque players and young vocal soloists
come together in Edinburgh s Canongate Kirk to give sell-out concerts of the great works of Bach
and Handel. Ludus Baroque s appearances are unmissable events in Edinburgh s calendar. Now,
for the first time, listeners from further afield can experience the vibrancy of their festival-fuelled
performances in this their debut recording. Alexander s Feast is the perfect showpiece for the
vitality and abandon of Ludus Baroque and their rising-star soloists.
