About

Following in their series of Gramophone and BBC Music Magazine award-winning recordings, the Gabrielis' first Handel recording in over a decade is particularly special – recreating in painstaking detail the very first performance of 'L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato', given in 1740, with additional instrumental repertoire including a Handel organ concerto and two concerti grossi.

With a reputation as peerless Handelians, Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort & players bring meticulous research to every performance and recording project and are joined on this disc by a stunning selection of soloists.
