Even though it has hardly been performed and rarely recorded, 'Allegro il Penseroso ed il Moderato' has to be counted as one of Handel's most beautiful and musically valuable oratorios. Its lack of popularity is solely due to the complexities of performance and the un-dramatic subject matter. In so doing, Handel bestowed some of his best music upon Charles Jennen's reworking of John Milton's text.
With this recording, Peter Neumann, together with the Cologne Chamber Choir and the Collegium Cartusianum, have brought this wonderful work to life, guaranteeing that it will sit proudly amongst the other oratorio works of Handel.
