Acis and Galatea- Polyphemus: 'O ruddier than the cherry' by GF Ha
Acis and Galatea- Polyphemus: 'O ruddier than the cherry' by GF Ha In 1717, in addition to writing operas for the London theaters, Handel went to work for the Duke of Chandos at Cannons, his splendid country house in Middlesex, north of London. Here he wrote a magnificent set of anthems for his employer, now known as the Chandos Galatea, to a libretto by John Gay. This was produced at Cannons in 1718. It tells the usual shepherd-meets-shepherdess story, with the difference that the shepherd Acis is killed by a rock, thrown by the jealous one-eyed, Cyclops Polyphemus, and transformed, in the manner of Classical mythology, into a limpid stream. Polyphemus' lustful song 'O ruddier than the cherry' quickly became drawing-room standard and is still a favourite with basses today, a magically conceived aria in this pastoral mini-tragedy. Polyphemus sings: "O ruddier than the cherry, O sweeter than the berry, O nymph more bright Than moonshine night, Like kidlings blithe and merry. Ripe as the melting cluster, No lily has such lustre; Yet hard to tame As raging flame, And fierce as storms that bluster! O ruddier. . . da capo" David van Asch, bass The Scholars Baroque Ensemble

Händel - Concerto Grosso Op. 6, No. 1 in G Major, HWV 319 (1/4)
Händel - Concerto Grosso Op. 6, No. 1 in G Major, HWV 319 (1/4) Georg Friedrich Händel (1685-1759) "Concerti Grossi Op.6, No.1 in G Major" mov. I - A tempo giusto mov. II - Allegro When someone asked Sir Edward Elgar how he had learned to write so well for strings, his answer was unequivocal: 'You will find the answer in Handel; I went to him for help years ago.' And it is true that the effectiveness and the sheer beauty of the string writing in these Handel concertos is marvellous. With the concertos of Bach, Handel's Opus 6 set of twelve concerti grossi represents the high point in baroque orchestral music. Handel was the greatest cosmopolitan of the age: a German composer, living in London, writing Italian operas. Of course he also wrote a good deal more, such as the oratorios in English which became his stock-in-trade when the Italian opera went out of fashion. For he was an immensely practical musician, who made his way by collaborating with the best artists of the day and working at the highest levels of performance, creating the music the audience wanted, having already made a strong impression on the direction of public taste. The Opus 6 concerti grossi came into being in a manner at once typical of Handel's career. When the concerti of the Italian ex-patriot Bononcini became all the rage in London, Handel's publisher, John Walsh suggested to the great man that he might compose something along similar lines. He duly obliged, and six weeks later he completed these twelve concertos. These twelve concertos are essentially string ...
