The music is in a spare, focused, linear style that, in this performance fired up moments of fierce trumpet-topped intensity…..The ICO played it as if their very lives depended on it. Michael Dervan, Irish Times

      “The Irish Chamber Orchestra under David Brophy played with terrific verve and élan in support of the seven strong cast all who seem very comfortable in their roles”.

      “This collaboration with the renowned Irish Chamber Orchestra was received with great enthusiasm in Limerick…”

      “Brophy and the ICO were crisp and double-dotted from the start, not as frantic as is the current Brito-Hibernian fashion, but fully in tune with the pathos and particular colouring of this piece; I’d not heard Brophy conduct Handel before but this was gorgeously and sensitively phrased, sparkling and fiery where required (and with some excellently jagged lightning-bolts and fireworks in the cascading da capos) but giving and tender at those places where Handel holds out a comforting hand to his suffering characters in the form of a cello or oboe to guide them through their grieving”.
