"Indeed, all of Handel's music here is brilliant, and Miss Robinson and Mr. Ostendorf are in top form, gliding easily over the runs and ornaments. Their teamwork is impressive. The accompanying orchestra has obviously been well rehearsed, and the recording is bright and clear." American Record Guide.
