Go to him to learn how to achieve great effects, by such simple means, said Beethoven of Handel. Yet for all their simplicity, the works that showcase Handel's brilliance--his oratorios and operas--are rich with dramatic strength and lyrical beauty. This collection is a modest attempt to utilize the power of the piano and organ to explore the great sense of melody on display in those works. In the hands of a lesser composer, the character of Handel's music could be lost, but Gilbert M. Martin makes these masterworks shine. Two copies are required for performance.

  • Prayer (from "Judas Maccabeus") 
  • Air (from "Rinaldo") 
  • March (from "Occasional Oratorio") 
  • Largo (from "Xerxes")
