George Frideric Handel: The ‘Amen, Alleluia’ Arias

Over a period of some twenty years, from the late 1720s, Handel composed a series of virtuoso arias using only the words ‘Amen’ and ‘Allelujah’ as his texts, probably for use in private worship. Here they receive their first recordings, set in a context of contemporary sacred song and instrumental music – and are heard in the extraordinarily dramatic timbres of a male-soprano voice.
