Alessandro Scarlatti

It is quite surprising that the program here, pairing settings of the Dixit Dominus by Handel and Alessandro Scarlattiis unique or at least very rare, for these two works were strongly connected. Scarlatti ‘s setting exists in a copy datedbut it may have been written before Handel ‘s. At any rate, there are parallelisms of structure, and the supposition that Scarlqtti was trying to knock off the established cock of the walk with his grandiose setting is not far-fetched.

The Handel Dixit Dominus is one of the masterpieces of the composer’s early years, perhaps the first work to show his characteristic way of building up a large structure from the most minimal of tonal resources, and it receives an absolutely superb performance here from the Brook Street Band and the Choir of Queen’s College, Oxford.


The choir represents the British university choral sound at its best, with a pleasantly smooth texture and clear renderings of the contrapuntal movements. The historical-instrument Brook Street Bandwith just a dozen members, does justice to the dimensions of Handel ‘s work.

But the real treat here is the eixit set of soloists. Sample the massive Dominus a dextris tuis movement of Handel ‘s work track Where Scarlatti contents himself with a simple dixut solo, Handel constructs a contrapuntal edifice involving all five of them, plus the choir, and all the singers emerge as real individuals joining forces.

The antiphonal contrast between the two sopranos at the beginning is a real thrill, and the music-making only deepens from there.

The Scarlatti work is full of opera-like arias that also display these soloists to best advantage. These are the Baroque stars of tomorrow here, and everything about this album represents British Baroque performance at its best.
