From our second recording for Naxos, this is Sibilar gli angui d'Aletto from the opera Rinaldo by George Frideric Handel.

Recorded in St Paul's, New Southgate in North London in May 2014, Music for Brass Septet Vol. 2 travels back a couple of centuries to the music of Baroque opera, with works by Rameau, Blow, Purcell and Handel.

Handel's 1711 crusader opera Rinaldo – the first Italian-language opera composed for the London stage – pits the Christian Rinaldo against Argante, the Muslim King of Jerusalem. Featuring Matthew Gee as the virtuoso trombone soloist, this is Artistic Director Simon Cox's arrangement of bellicose Argatne's grand Act I entrance.

This recording was made possible thanks to funding from Stewart Newton.

Trumpets (L to R): Huw Morgan, Alan Thomas, Simon Cox
Trombones (R to L): Matthew Gee, Matthew Knight, Dan West
Tuba: Pete Smith


Recorded by Phil Rowlands and Jim Unwin.
