Recommended by bookseller Eleanor Franzen:
"From the joyful cover to the fact that the font isn’t too small, from the canny summaries of every opera and oratorio Handel wrote to the insightful but not distractingly detailed musical analysis, Handel in London is tailor-made to be a music lover's Christmas gift. Jane Glover, who has made a career out of conducting Handel's work, doesn't shy away from singer drama either, giving us the full details of the famous rivalry between Handel's two best sopranos. Delightfully rompy yet informative; highly recommended."
