I cannot believe that no one has reviewed this recording. It is one of Handel's best pieces of music, set to delightful words by Dryden. But most importantly it has the the stunning singing of Dorothee Mields. I do not understand why she is not more famous than she is. Personally I cannot stand throbbing, vibrating sopranos who sing Bach and Handel as though they were singing Wagner. If you feel this way you will love Dorothee Mields. She has a modest amount of vibrato, and a very pure, boy like voice that can only be described as spine tingling.
She sings a lot on this recording, but three solos are are quite wonderful: 1) Track 5; What passion cannot music raise, 2) Track 8; The soft complaining flute, and Track 10; But oh! what art can teach.
I also strongly recommend her recording of the Mozart Coronation Mass, and his Exsultante, Jubilate.
I safely predict that having heard these two recordings of Dorothee Mields you will be searching the internet for more.
