George Frideric Handel’s “Alcina”, “Ariodante” and “Il pastor Fido” (The Faithful Shepherd) were cornerstone of Sir Thomas Beecham’s so-called ‘lollipops’ and are beautifully rendered here. These recordings represent some of Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields with Sir Neville Marriner’s earliest, dating from 1970 and 1971.

What a beautiful recording and performance! Anything performed by The Academy Of St. Martin in the Fields with Neville Marriner is always something to savour. These certainly does not disappoint!! Wonderful. – customer review
