You'll have to ransack your knowledge of Handel's London to figure out the meaning of my smart-aleck review title. But my rating is easy; the recording quality of this CD is too poor to justify more than three stars, no matter that the performance is (or was) quite decent. The Frankfurt Baroque Orchestra plays with panache, all four sopranos have the right stuff, and even the chorus shows musical instincts. But even if the sound quality were better, this would be a "collector's item" performance, a strange historical artifact.

When Georg Friedrich Handel visited Ansbach, Germany, in 1716, he invited Johann Cristoph Schmidt to come to England to serve as his assistant and chief copyist. Under the Anglicized name John Christopher Smith, "Schmidt" served faithfully until Handel's death in 1759. He was rewarded by the bequest of all of Handel's own manuscripts. Schmidt/Smith lived only until 1763, whereupon the manuscripts passed to his son, also named John Christopher Smith. The younger Smith had already been serving as Handel's helper in the performance of oratorios. He was an organist, a teacher of music, and a very minor composer in his own right. After Handel's death, he took the lead in perpetuating the annual performances of The Messiah and other oratorios, particularly as charity fundraisers. "Tobit" was one of several pastiche oratorios Smith assembled by selecting arias and choruses from Handel's various manuscripts; the English libretto for "Tobit" was supplied by Thomas Morell. There is only circumstantial evidence that the pastiche was ever performed. The creation of a "new" work from old music was not at all unusual or disreputable in Smith's era; Handel himself was a diligent recycler of his own music, and occasionally of the music of others.

John Christopher Smith: Tobit - Oratorio after Handel is a recording under the direction of Joachim Carlos Martini who leads the Frankfurt Baroque Orchestra on this Naxos recording from 2001. This oratorio was compiled by John Christopher Smith and is a compilation from Handel's operas, oratorios and other works. The liner-notes have been written by Keith Anderson and are very well-written and informative. Recommended. 4/5.

The title says it well. Despite a sealed copy, plus a sealed replacement copy from an Amazon seller, fine performance for the first disc that played in both regular and portable CD players, but the second disk, 80 minutes long, had skips and failed to complete play. NAXOS engineering/pressing probably at fault.
