Love, jealousy, tragedy, transfiguration - Acis & Galatea has it all. It’s no surprise that Handel’s ‘little opera’, as he called it, was his most popular stage work during his lifetime and would become the prototype for the English oratorio, which earned Handel such fame in the latter part of his career. Performed by Dunedin Consort (on their first visit to Stour) in the original ‘Cannons’ version with solo-voice choruses: ‘utterly magic’. — Gramophone
