Notes and Editorial Reviews

Label's Note (4/99) - "The award-winning Classical Kids series introduces children -- and adults -- to the joys of classical music. A dramatic story, a little bit of history and the world's best-loved classical music set the scene for these fun-filled musical adventures.
Katarina, first introduced in Vivaldi's Ring of Mystery, has left Venice for England with her grandfather. At an elegant - though rather bizarre - party in London, she meets the great composer George Frideric Handel. Katarina and Maestro Handel are drawn together by the haunting voice of Thomas, a young boy brought by his keeper to sing for the assembled guests. Katarina and Handel are filled with compassion for the boy and gradually unravel his strange past. Through the
Read more kindness of Katarina, the generosity of the famous composer and the power and majesty of Handel's music, Thomas's heart is healed, unlocking the voice of an angel. Hallelujah Handel! brings to life the soundscapes of 18th century London and is filled with more than two dozen excerpts of Handel's most glorious music."
Includes work(s) by George Frideric Handel. Ensemble: Studio Arts Orchestra. Conductor: Walter Babiak. Read less
