Description: Aria recitals of works for famous historical singers are popular these days and Tactus' first gives us some of the repertoire sung in the period 1722-26 with a couple of slightly later pieces by the wife of composer Hasse. If you know baroque opera, you'll have heard the name. The notes are good, dealing with each work and aria in turn, making up somewhat for the lack of texts. No texts. Agata Bienkowska (mezzo), barockwerk Hamburg; Ira Hochman (harpsichord).
