HANDEL

Song for St Cecilia’s Day, Look Down, Harmonious Saint, Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 7

Mary Bevan [soprano]

Ed Lyon [tenor]

Ludus Baroque / Richard Neville-Towle

Following the widespread critical acclaim of their debut recording, 'Alexander’s Feast', Ludus Baroque brings their celebrated verve to Handel's 'Song for St Cecilia’s Day'. Coupled with his miniature cantata for tenor, 'Look down Harmonius Saint', which Handel wrote to supplement performances of 'Alexander's Feast', and with the Concerto Grosso in B flat, written in his fruitful autumn of 1739, Handel approaches the setting of this second text by John Dryden with the same extraordinary vividness of detail and metrical virtuosity as Alexander’s Feast.

"What passion cannot music raise and quell?" - the answer is that it can raise and quell them all: martial, erotic, sacred ... but as music had, in the beginning, been the divine principle of cosmic order, so, on the Final Day, it will be the force that dissolves the universe.

"the fabulous line-up of soloists, fizzes with energy, sounding fresh off the page. Virtually every aria, clearly and beautifully articulated by the soloists, is a gem" Early Music Today, June 2011 "a notable achievement...Ludus Baroque breathe life into this St Cecilia celebration." Gramophone, June 2011
