Who sings Händel's "Fammi combattere" best? (female vocalists)

Singer(s): Nathalie Stutzmann Vivica Genaux Sonia Prina Ewa Podles Ann Hallenberg

*** Because of the source recording, I regrettably could not include the da capo repeat for Sonia Prina's live performance; however, I felt that it was still a worthy inclusion for this singing contest.

Mezzo-sopranos Vivica Genaux and Ann Hallenberg as well as Contraltos Nathalie Stutzmann, Ewa Podles and Sonia Prina sing the aria di bravura "Fammi combattere" from Händel's opera Orlando. Who sings it best, in your opinion? Don't judge by the video thumbnail. :-)

(A separate contest has been uploaded for male vocalists)

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Aria: Orlando
Fammi combattere, mostre e tifei,
novi trofei se vuoi dal mio valor.

Muraglie abbatere, disfare incanti,
se vuoi ch'io vanti darti prove d'amor.

English Libretto or Translation:

Aria: Orlando
Go bid me fight monsters and beasts,
new trophies, if you want, of my love.

Battlements to overturn, spells to unbind,
If you want me to prove my love to you.
