Item Number: NX.CKD543

Apollo e Dafne, composed by George Frideric Handel in 1709, is a secular cantata, and one of Handel's most ambitious cantatas. The success of this work was indicative of Handel's outstanding operatic career which would soon follow its release. Vocal soloists Mhairi Lawson, soprano, and Callum Thorpe, bass, join the ensemble for the cantata. This release also includes two recital pieces for wind band, which shows Ensemble Marsyas' instrumentalists' great talent. Ensemble Marsyas is an Edinburgh based chamber group which is made up of the best of this generation of musicians who specialize in European early music. "…this music positively flourishes in the hands of the Ensemble Marsyas." (BBC Music Magazine) "…the whole group plays with uncanny rap pot… a stream of unalloyed listening pleasure." (Early Music Today).
