HANDEL'S RIVALS
(CD- JAN D203) BUY IT

Arias by the Italians who threatened Handel's unique position in England.

"Extremely interesting repertoire; we hear about Handel's trials and tribulations at the hands of other imported composers, but rarely do we get to hear any of their music. I hope they go on to discover more gems."
Early Music Review, December 1999.
