Before Handel got his hands on it.

Quite good! Reminds me a bit of the old castrati recordings.

I wasn't aware of the aria's history under different composers. How fascinating! Thanks for sharing this!

Have you ever listened to Nathalie Stutzmann's performance of the Handel version? I find it vastly more beautiful than some of the countertenor performances. But that, I suppose, is a mere matter of personal preference. Even so, I must admit I rather find everything she sings is simply heavenly!

I don't know why I'm on such an opera kick, but I am!

She gives Bartoli a run for her money. It's strange hearing it sung that low, but it's equally emotive.

Very, very good! And it doesn't hurt my ears in the same way Cristina Deutekom's performance of this aria does. Such a coloratura aria requires so, so much skill! It's damned impressive!

Something one of my professors suggested in an email that I might consider listening to.
