KENNETH McKELLAR SINGS HANDEL
Sir Andrian Boult described the Scottish tenor Kenneth McKellar as "the best Handel singer of the 20th Century". In 1959 - 60 McKellar recorded Handel arias with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House Covent Garden with Boult conducting. In 1961 he recorded more Handel arias with Boult and the London Symphony Orchestra for a recording of the Messiah. This CD includes arias from both recordings. Tracks include Omra Mai Fu, Love in Her Eyes Sits Playing from Acis and Galatea, Silent Worship (Did you not hear my lady), Where'er You Walk from Semele plus How Vain is Man and Sound an Alarm from Judas Maccabaeus. The seven arias from Messiah are Comfort Ye ... Ev'ry Valley, All they that see him ... He trusted in God, Thy rebuke hath broken his heart .. Behold and See, He was cut off .... But Thou Didst Not leave, Unto which of the Angels ... Let all the Angels of God, He that dwelleth in Heaven ... Thou shalt break them, O Death, where is thy sting?
