Notes and Editorial Reviews

Andreas Reize leads the Cantus Firmus Consort in the cantata, Apollo e Dafne by George Frideric Handel, recorded at the Waldegg Castle. Soprano Andrea Lauren Brown, born in Wilmington, Delaware has become well known to opera lovers in Europe, and has already sung numerous roles there to high acclaim. Bass-Baritone Dominik Wörner has become a highly sought after singer since winning first prize at the 2002 Bach Competition in Leipzig as well as the Leipzig Baroque Orchestra Special Prize master class in song with Irwin Gage in Zurich, where he graduated with honors. Don’t miss the delightful aria Mie piante correte (My running feet) in Apollo e Dafne, which requires breathtaking skill from both singer and orchestra.

Other
Read more compositions on this album include two rarely heard suites from Handel’s lost opera, Die verwandelte Daphne and the beautiful chaconne from the ballet Terpsichore which Handel also used in his opera Radamisto.
