Handel: The Great Oratorios (41 CD Limited Edition Box Set)

This 41CD set presents the 16 oratorios that form George Frideric Handels greatest legacy in renowned period-instrument performances, all presented at an exceptional level.

These are the masterpieces that inspired the succeeding generation, most notably Haydn, Mozart and Mendelssohn.

The recordings selected for this collection represent some of the greatest Handel interpretations ever set down, featuring icons of the historically-informed performance movement such as Christopher Hogwood, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Trevor Pinnock, Harry Christophers and Marc Minkowski.

Within the lift-off box with its gold-foil detailing, each work is housed in its own individual gate-fold wallet.

The accompanying 3-language booklet presents detailed track lists, session photographs and a new article by Lindsay Kemp exploring the composers musical genius beyond Messiah.
