Sacred Arias with Harp & Harp Duets

Composer(s):
  • Georg Friedrich Händel (1685-1759)

Much nobility, a polished style, four ravishing harp duos … enough reasons to discover this salon Handel, without feathers or lace. Diapason … Cardiff-born Rachel Ann Morgan is without question one of our major talents … very fine singing, the highly-accomplished playing of Edward Witsenberg and the exceptionally fine recorded sound.
