Album information

Recorded during this year's Misteria Paschalia Festival in Poland, Dunedin Consort's performance of Handel’s Ode for St Cecilia’s Day sees them joined for the first time by tenor Ian Bostridge and soprano Carolyn Sampson.

Bostridge demonstrates the technical mastery and vocal precision that has seen him win many of the major international record prizes in his twenty-five year career. Highly sought-after for her refined Baroque sensibilities and pure intonation, Sampson's lyric soprano is ideally suited to Handel.

Led by John Butt, with singers from the Polish Radio Choir, this rich and colourful tribute to music's patron saint is the latest in their much-lauded Handel discography, which includes Messiah, Acis & Galatea and Esther, each recording having won widespread acclaim.

The recording is completed by Handel's Concerto Grosso in A minor Op. 6 No. 4, in which Dunedin Consort's exceptional instrumentalists take centre stage.
