This is a very nice collection! I am very pleased with it and can't stop listening since the moment I received, specially the first and second tracks on cd 2. Absolutely recommend this for all Handel and Baroque fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly beautiful May 18, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the very best production of the opera I have ever heard. Wish it was on CD as well. The voices all blend with a startling beauty and clarity, the music is divine, Bayo, Gimenez, and Manca di Nissa are at their very best. Cannot say enough good things about it.

I invariably say to myself when listening to the singers following one another in this glorious Handel CD, "I'm ON MY KNEES before you for the blessed 5" you're inviting me to share with you and Handel." And I've said this about every single singer and every single aria here at one time or another. Careful selecting was done by the producer so there are no let down numbers and everyone is in glorious form. And the price is mighty enticing, too!
