Product Description

Review


"Brings us as near as we are ever likely to get to the last word on the second-largest part of the composer's output....Definitive."--The Guardian


"Mr. Dean's book helps us to understand Handel, his age, and ourselves more deeply. It should acquire the status of a classic not only for its impeccable scholarship, but still more for its humane insights."--Wilfred Mellers, The Spectator


"His handling of evidence is masterly. Throughout the book the cross-references build up its internal strength and the footnotes often support with wit as well as scholarship the massive progress of the argument...this [is a] lucid, well-documented, humane work of profound learning."--Times Literary Supplement
