"One of my Christmas presents (I cheated and opened it last week), this was given to me by a friend who knows I like Rameau, and this music is same era & same style. If I hadn't known, I would have guessed that this was Rameau's music, one of the operas I haven't heard yet. All the singers are excellent, Sophie Daneman is ideal for this music, and Padmore & Brua are also well-suited for Baroque opera. Great bargain price for this 2-disc jewel. Has Les Arts Florissants ever put out a mediocre recording ? Like CPO, Hyperion, Sterling and so many other smaller labels, Harmonia Mundi keeps unearthing diamonds for us. Recommended for lovers of Baroque opera and Sophie Daneman fans."
