Many thanks for the upload, Christopher. And no, I've never heard of this one!

For all its solecisms (it's in English; it's heavily cut; it makes use of a later edition which featured a tenor for the title part), I find it a very appealing performance of an extremely rare Handel opera. Particularly winning are the great performances by two exemplars of the "Golden Age of English Handel Singing (the 60s and 70s)": Valerie Masterson and Paul Esswood. My original reel-to-reel copy has disappeared but I recently found a cassette-dub I had made which still sounds, I hope, pretty good. > > http://rapidshare.com/files/400215525/OS_Scipione.zip.html > > (with thanks to Herbert for his many uploads and hoping he hasn't heard this one and enjoys it.) > > DOWNLOAD LINKS SHOULD NOT BE PASSED OUTSIDE THIS GROUP, PUBLISHED ON > BLOGS OR PUBLISHED ON OTHER GROUPS BY ANY MEMBER OTHER THAN THE UPLOADER.

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
