Arcadia hails from Melbourne, and specialises in baroque cantata repertoire. Here they perform five of Handel's Italian cantatas, works full of fire and passion. This is virtuosic music, beautifully performed. Arcadia's first CD, Buxtehude Cantatas (TP157) has received rave responses from the press.
