Notes and Editorial Reviews

Benoît Haller and his ensemble La Chapelle Rhénane would only agree to make a live recording of this work, whose immense popularity is reflected in its virtually uninterrupted performing tradition, once they had fully come to terms with their innovative musical options: to go beyond superficial virtuosity and attain a new and authentic fervour and sincerity. Here is a powerful and highly personal version of this timeless, universal masterpiece, marked by the intense commitment of twelve vocal soloists chosen for their specific vocal colour and their fidelity to Handel's music.
