Format: Audio CD
The Handel revival has come on a long way in the last 50 years, but pleasant things are still coming out into the light. This is an Italian oratorio, written when the master was 23, still learning his trade and making his name in Italy before his final move to England. The very helpful liner note by Anthony Hicks fills in the background: the work was intended as a public Easter Day entertainment. Biblical oratorio was almost a branch of opera, and saved on costumes and other staging expenses. La Resurrezione seems to have scored a major success when first performed, but it has lapsed since and in fact Handel's revisions to the score, presumably representing his final thoughts on it, were discovered as recently as 1960. He never himself revived the work, and I hope it can be suggested without disrespect that it is not hard to see why.

Nearly all the arias show clear signs of what this young master was capable of, but even at 23 he was worldly enough and sufficiently career-minded not to provide anything too deep or too lofty for his patron or his public. The opening section of the overture (or `sonata') sets the tone right away, and would have seemed unsuitably light-hearted for the later audiences for Handel's Sacred Grand Oratorios in London. The characterisation, particularly of Lucifer, is blatantly operatic. Above all, there are no choruses as we have come to know them from Handel's prime. The only thing by that name here is a short ensemble at the end of the first part. When in Rome do what the Romans want.

This recording is of a live performance in 2001, with applause at the start and end of each half, and a small quota of footsteps. I did not notice any unwelcome audience noise, whether it is the audience or the recording technicians we are to thank for that.

I rate this recording five stars not only for the general excellence of all the performers but especially for that of soprano Maria Cristina Kiehr. Her fine musicianship is enhanced by a voice that literally is unique among female singers. Her vocal technique is strong and well focused and may be described as voci bianché. For lovers of Renaissance and Baroque vocal music who have some understanding of the potential sound of castrati, Kiehr’s voice most closely approximates their sound based upon my extensive research and listening experience. I would be fascinated to hear Kiehr extend her performances to great opera arias from the golden age of the Baroque. Although “La Resurrezione” is very early Handel, it does give us a taste of what Kiehr could do with arias.
