Martin Davids is a REMARKABLE violinist and Callipygian is an exception group. For me, they overshadowed the still-wonderful Bella Voce. The Vivaldi was excellent, as was just about everything but the Handel, which seemed generic, as it is, indeed, Handel choral music. The featured voices were in general, superb.
I have to say more about Martin Davids...I was unfamiliar with him, and as the ensemble first accompanied the chorus, he stood out - seated, having what seemed a sensuous experience with his violin and the music. In his long and virtuosic solo, he expounded on this, and his almost romantic rendering of the piece was astounding!
