“My Name is Handel is a wonderful way to introduce young people ages seven and up to the majesty of great music, yet its timeless appeal will reach out to family members of all ages. Highly recommended, especially as a gift to families or for public library music CD collections.”
– James Cox, Children's Bookwatch
