Editorial Reviews

Product description

Oratorio / Yvonne Kenny, soprano - Catherine Denley, mezzo-sop. - James Bowman, contreténor - Michael George, basse... - Choir of New College, Oxford - The Choir of King's Consort - The King's Consort, dir. Robert King

Amazon.com

Winton Dean, the, ahem, dean of modern Handel scholarship, considered Joseph and His Brethren one of Handel's weakest oratorios. Don't believe it: the music is wonderful, and even the libretto isn't nearly as bad as Dean makes out. The King's Consort gives the same high-quality performance it always gives to Handel's oratorios. James Bowman sounds particularly comfortable in the title role; while all the soloists are good, soprano Yvonne Kenny (who gets all the best arias) is terrific. --Matthew Westphal
