"With his acting chops and weighty bass-baritone, Purves in full cry is a splendid and fearful spectacle" - The Times.

The magnificent Christopher Purves performs a recital of Handel's bass arias. This unique collection demonstrates the range and brilliance of Handel's writing for this voice, featuring a selection from Italian and English operas, English classical drama, Biblical oratorios, literary odes and a masque. Handel's endlessly imaginative gift for characterization is fully explored here, 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 'Tears, such as tender fathers shed' from the oratorio Deborah.

Artists: Christopher Purves (bass), Arcangelo.
Composers: Handel.
Conductors: Jonathan Cohen.
Tracks: GEORGE FRIDERIC HANDEL (1685-1759)
