The magnificent voice of Christopher Purves is featured on this unique recital disc of Handel's bass arias. The works heard here demonstrate the range and brilliance of Handel's writing for this voice and include selections from his Italian and English operas, English classical drama, Biblical oratorios, literary odes and a masque. Handel's endlessly imaginative gift for characterization is fully explored, with Purves commanding an extraordinary emotional and technical range - from the buffo blustering of Polyphemus in Acis and Gatalea to the loving musings of Abinoam in the oratorio Deborah. Gramophone Award winning Baroque band Arcangelo led by director Jonathan Cohen provide the sparkling accompaniments.
