    It is very nice to see you posting in this thread, Eugene! Maybe you have been here before but I haven't been here for a while. I am listening to the unabridged audio book of Anthony Tomassini's Indispensable COmposers. Last night listened to the chapter on Handel. So much music there and an interesting man. Have you read any biographies of Handel? Are u just starting to explore more of his vocal music? Posting from my phone: apologize for abbreviations, etc..

    I'm not not a great vocal music fan, but Handel's Rinaldo is one of the few vocal works I've watched live and of which I have a recording. The other is Purcell's Dido and Aeneas.

    I painted Handel as part of huge music mural we painted at school. He ended up looking more like Oliver Cromwell in a bad wig. I know about Handel's life, but never read any biographies. I visited Handel's house though, when the museum opened.

    Getting into a bit of sacred music lately. Starting with the big ones, Mozart's Requiem, Ave Verum Corpus, and Great Mass in C minor, Beethoven's Missa solemnis. Some others I've been enjoying include Handel's Dixit Dominus, Josquin's Missa Pange Lingua, Haydn's Nelson Mass, Bach's cantata Christ lag in Todesbanden, Monteverdi's Vespro della beata vergine. Great stuff all of it.

    Genuinely hope that you enjoyed Mendelssohn's overture to Handel's Israel in Egypt and was curious as to whether you think that its antecedents can be heard in the Hebrides concert overture...

    In order of personal preference... One of my favourite works as I never fail to hear something with each listening that I had not heard before.

    Superb thread - allow me to express my gratitude for its creation -
    Ooooh...my heart be still. My favourite Biber's sonatas and all in one post. Only for me it would be a tie between Podger and Manze, and Holloway would be in the third place.

    Bach, St. John Passion Ritualization, Anniversary Performance, Simon Rattle, Berlin Philharmonic

    Bryn Terfel was supposed to perform but I don't know why he didn't. He would have been a great Pilate.
