Handel: Apollo e Dafne
cantus firmus consort, Andreas Reize
The cantus firmus consort under the experienced leadership of Andreas Reize present Handel’s Apollo e Dafne together with four other compositions by Handel, including two suites from the lost opera Die verwandelte Daphne and a chaconne from the ballet Terpsichore.
“Neatly cut with suites from a lost 'Dafne' opera and tailed by a cheerful chaconne, Handel's cantata is given lively context in a tautly-directed recording.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2012 ****
“They both make the most of Handel's utterly delightful and sometimes poignant music. I think neither could be fairly said to have an exceptionally beautiful voice, but they both sing with great skill and dramatic insight...on the whole this recording is very recommendable, not least for the delightful orchestral rarities.” International Record Review, January 2012

Handel - Apollo e Dafne
Händelfestspielorchester Halle, Bernhard Forck
In 1706 Handel was commissioned to set to music an extensive libretto based on the ancient myth of Daphne and Apollo. It was not seen on the stage until 1708 and was a very long work, divided into two sections. He reset the work in 1710 and this recording combines his two compositions.
