Album information

The second Handel recording from the award-winning Dunedin Consort is a revelation. The album was a finalist in the 'Baroque Vocal' category in the 2009 Gramophone Awards.

For the many fans of the Consort's award-winning Messiah, the release of another Handel album is welcome news and Acis and Galatea does not disappoint! Classic FM magazine named the recording 'Opera & Vocal Disc of the Month'. In addition to awarding the recording five stars the magazine stated "...the freshness with which they sing radiates joy throughout the entire score". This adds to the numerous recommendations and outstanding reviews that the double award-winning group have received for their recording of this pastoral entertainment by Handel.

Gramophone named the recording 'Disc of the Month' and it was named the 'First Choice' recommendation by Record Review's 'Building a Library' on BBC Radio 3, who described it as "a vivacious performance brimming with sheer happiness".
