This is an attractive recording with a style very much suited to the unique repertoire on the program. These are not operatic duets but chamber pieces, to texts of mostly unknown poets, accompanied by a smooth continuo group consisting of cello, archlute, and director Robert King on keyboards. Many of them were written in Italy, early in Handel's career, but he returned to the form during his highly public years in the 1740s. The booklet makes much of the music's similarity to Handel's operatic language, and indeed some of the tunes here will be familiar. Sample the first part of Se tu non lasci amore, track 11, some of which turns up again in "O Death, Where Is Thy Sting?" from Messiah. Yet the feel of the music is not really operatic. Each duet is in two or three small parts, with a total length of between four and ten minutes, and everything is reduced to a small, rather intimate scale. The music seems devoted to the precise expression of an affect embodied in a sentence of two of text. The voices of soprano Gillian Fisher and countertenor James Bowman are nicely suited to the music and are distinguished by their sharply different timbres. Fisher's is a classic early music voice, modest in size and applying vibrato for expressive effect rather than as a basic sound; it remains distinct in the texture from Bowman's richer, more melancholy lines.
