Synopsis

Amazon.com
It's good to hear Maureen Forrester in her prime. Though famous later in her career as a Mahler specialist, the Canadian contralto made many fine recordings of Baroque music for Vanguard, and this is certainly one of them. However, as a performance of the oratorio it must yield to Nicholas McGegan's superb version on Harmonia Mundi, which is complete and features an even finer lineup of singers. --David Hurwitz
