Academy of Ancient Music, Cambridge Handel Opera Company, Cambridge Early Music and Julian Perkins are proud to present the first professional recording of John Eccles's Semele (c.1707), a notable early setting of the great English libretto by William Congreve better known in a version by GF Handel from 1744. Academy of Ancient Music's mission is to explore, reveal and preserve the great treasure house of baroque and classical music, and a spirit of newfound discovery runs through all our work. Eccles's Semele is the next step on this journey, released here on 2 albums an extensive accompanying full-color booklet containing scholarly essays, Stephen Fry's modern re-telling of the story, autograph manuscript images of Eccles' score, the full libretto text and much more. A fascinating insight into how opera in England might have developed after Henry Purcell's death had not Handel moved to London in 1712, Eccles's Semele is the perfect addition to any baroque-music lover's library.
