Archiv has a meticulous and time-honored reputation for producing historically informed recordings of music from the Baroque era, many of which owned the turf from the day they were released. This recording of Handel's celebratory music must certainly be included among them as it contains all of the regal pomp and majesty that one would associate with the idiom vis-Ó-vis the commanding timbre of the trumpets, underpinned by the pounding timpani. The recording also features a young tenor by the name of Harry Christophers . . . This is an energetic and well-managed recording, with precise but never mechanical execution by the band and signing that displays both the sterling quality of the soloists and the choral singing of the time-honored English cathedral tradition in a rich and reverberant setting. One finds gravitas and tenderness, but both consistently in the service of structural unity. The result is vital and stimulating, and exhibits a thoughtful balance between the printed page and instinctive musicianship. Indeed, this recording's strong points could be included in a "How to" handbook on the art of Baroque performance. This Archiv release is truly something special; even at the age of 25, it can and should still command the respect and admiration of Handelians elsewhere.
