“…Mcgegan, Nicholas… conducting is light on its feet without ever sounding pressed. His soloists, bar for bar, match Reuss\'s in quality. Tim Mead\'s counter-tenor Solomon offers pleasing tone… Dominque Labelle sparkles as his consort while Claron McFadden\'s Queen of Sheba is as shiny as her Second Harlot is shrill. The general fluency of Michael Slattery\'s Zadok (as with Padmore) is only impeded when the notes come really thick and fast, and Roderick Williams\'s Levite is sonorous and smooth. Both sets are good, through neither quite matches Paul McCreesh\'s complete and colourful version, which also has the best sound.” BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE

“McGegan… directs his responsive orchestra with his customary rhythmic verve and feeling for the grand gesture. He uses an all-male choir, as Handel himself did, often with memorable results… Though they could make more of their words, McGegan\'s sopranos are both fine (Dominique Labelle, with her not unattractive fast vibrato, is especially moving as the first harlot); and Roderick Williams sings with warm, firm tone as the Levite.” GRAMOPHONE
