    I'm sure I'll be listening to it again.

    You're welcome. Sounds like we had similar reactions.

    Just arrived today. Excellent recording/performance. Comes with a beautiful booklet of heavy high gloss pages with a lot of photographs of actors and scenes from historic performances. This set is mastered from the original master tapes and the performance is faithful to the original with no cuts and "all the later adjustments and home-grown additions removed."

    Both well sung, but I prefer the King version. Better voices, and more pastoral and evocative.

    Handel: L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato
    Gillian Webster (soprano), Laurence Kilsby (treble), Jeremy Ovenden (tenor), Peter Harvey (baritone), Ashley Riches (bass), William Whitehead (organ)
    Gabrieli Consort & Players, Paul McCreesh



    Handel: L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato
    Susan Gritton, Claron McFadden, Lorna Anderson, Paul Agnes, Neal Davies
    The King's Consort, Robert King

    These two. Like them both very much. Hard to choose between them for a favorite.

    Going back to the one I had to begin with, it turns out to be a fine recording that stands right up there with the two posted above.

    I've been seriously thinking of buying this recording -- can't quite choose between it or the version with Mattila and Araiza in the leads. I have the Carlos Kleiber on DG with Janowitz and Schreier, and while overall it's a fine recording, I really can't warm much to Schreier's lightweight, nasalized Max. (What I'd really like is a new recording with Kaufmann and either Harteros or Nylund as Agathe. )

    I also own the IMHO under-rated Haitink, but will not be listening to that in this go-around
