5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent music Sept. 13 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Saul is one of those lesser known works by Handel. I certainly prefer Solomon, the Messiah or Israel in Egypt. Nevertheless, there is plenty of glorious music in Saul. The Monteverdi sings with their customary virtuosity. Casting of solo parts is superb. A bit on the pricey side but this is an investment that will yield rich dividends over a long period of time. Instead of listening to the Messiah all the time, or Solomon or Jephtha, why not be more daring and explore this lesser known work by Handel?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another feast for Handelians Dec 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
Here's another astonishing piece for all Handelians. Many of Handel's great pieces have sadly been neglected - just like many of Richard Strauss' operas which have only recently received attention from people like Botstein, Korsten and Sinopoli (deceased). Thankfully, Gardiner and his team took the trouble to record this astonishing masterpiece. I simply love this piece - Saul!! The Monteverdi choir is the best in the world - listen to their stunning virtuosity here. Thank you, Gardiner!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A full-throated, dramatic version of a great Handel work. June 7 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was a little skeptical of buying the "Sixteen" version of an oratorio, because small choirs have been known to turn Handel's great dramas into fluty, hooty, bloodless shadows of what they deserve. But I was very pleasantly surprised by this recording. The choir sounds robust and "big" whenever it needs to, the soloist work is superb, and the ear-catchingest part of all is the wonderful orchestral colors Handel (and the recording) achieves with harp, "bells," and trombones in addition to the usual baroque orchestra. Beautifully performed and excellently engineered.
