(5 out of 5 stars)
"The sops in this recording defy belief - esp in 'Furie Terrabile' this woman has to be heard to be believed (and then again, and again, and again....!!) ELECTRIFYING!! Marilyn is great and Ernesto is fabulous!
It is definately a 'live' recording and the quality is not what one might call 'CD quality' but the singing makes it the finest Rinaldo you will EVER hear - the ornamentation is stupendous, but not 'over-the-top'.
An absolute must-have in any Handel collection - makes the Hogwood soloists perfectly tame and pale in comparison (although the sound quality in Hogwood and effects are superior).
Words cannot decribe how fantastic the singing is......"
