About this album

"There is vintage Handel to be gleaned here. Layton never over-inflates the music but rather invigorates it through carefully detonated points of detail: the explosive choral entry which cuts the polite bluster introducing ‘Let God Arise’ is a good example."

On this CD

  • "O praise the Lord with one consent" HWV254 

  • "Let God arise" HWV256a 

  • "My song shall be alway" HWV252
