Written at the peak of Handel's prowess, this theatrical number is crammed with Handel's most dazzling music: spectacular orchestral numbers and powerful choruses combine with heart-stopping arias, including the popular 'Where'er you walk'.

‘In the title role, soprano Rosemary Joshua applies light and graceful tone and conveys Smemle's[sic] willful, pleasure-seeking nature. As her immortal lover Jupiter, tenor Richard Croft is equally lucid and nimble.' BBC Music Magazine

‘Christian Curnyn understands the unique tinta of this gorgeous score, and directs his spruce period band with a nice blend of nonchalant elegance and dramatic energy. Tempi are shrewdly judged, rhythms light and supple, and recitatives tumble inevitably into arias.... As at the English National opera, rosemary Joshua, radiant of tone, dazzling coloratura, makes Semele far more than an over-sexed airhead... this becomes a clear first choice for an ever enticing work.' Gramophone

‘It is superbly sung by the tenor Robert Croft, easily the most sensuous of all recorded Jupiters, while Rosemary Joshua is captivating as Semele - her diamaninte tone and dazzling coloratura technique making nimble work of her gorgeous arias... A must for Handelians, and anyone who doesn't know one of his most life-enhancing masterpieces.' The Sunday Times
