Jointly maintained by Brad Leissa and musicologist David Vickers, this site is designed to serve as “a valuable resource for both Handelian scholars and enthusiasts.” They have done a splendid job, and the site contains copious information on the latest recordings of his works, along with timely reviews of these recordings. The site also features a thorough discography of both Handel’s operas and his oratorios, dramas, and odes. Moving on, visitors will also find a updated list of upcoming Handel concerts and festivals, supplemented by another list of related conferences and workshops. Additionally, the site has a number of web-exclusive interviews with the director of the Handel House Museum in London, the baroque trumpeter Crispian Steele-Perkins, and countertenor David Daniels. Rounding out the site is a section titled “Potpourri”, which features images of Handel on tobacco trading cards and a selection of his most memorable busts.
