    Handel Gold

    If you like the vocal music of George Frederick Handel, you'll like this collection immensely. This has several of today's top performers doing selections from various operas and oratorios of the 18th century Titan.
    If you're not a fan of Baroque, stay away. If you don't know the vocal music of Handel, this would be an excellent place to start.
