“William Christie’s account on Erato is probably now a first recommendation… he has marshalled expert singers; Alan Ewing’s Polyphemus is particularly good, well characterized and spirited. Indeed, the whole performance is full of life and personality, and Christie holds everything together with finesse and grace.” Penguin Guide *** Key recording
“Christie has elected to give a ‘chamber version’ of the work, that is, with forces akin to those Handel used for his original Cannons performances: probably five singers and between seven and a dozen instrumentalists… it is a polished and strongly characterized performance, finely recorded, and is certainly the first we would urge anyone to try.” Gramophone Classical Good CD Guide
