Product Description

CD Description

Handel s Coronation Anthems have delighted audiences ever since their first performance in 1727. They appear in all their glory on this recording interspersed with a selection of Handel favourites including an interesting version of his Organ Concerto in F Major Opus 4 in its original version with the finale of an Hallelujah chorus. One of Handel s first tasks as a naturalized British Citizen was to write the music for the Coronation of the new monarch King George II. Rarely did a composer of the day have such an audience for his new works and Handel composed his four Anthems to match the pomp and grandeur of the occasion and, of course, the venue Westminster Abbey.

I know all these works from having sung them myself but never as good as this. If you enjoy this particular genre then you cannot go wrong with this CD. Strongly recommend.

By I. Giles HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This disc, very well recorded in 2008, makes a very satisfying set of choral works plus some orchestral items. The musical values are high and this is a serious alternative to the Pinnock set which is sparser in sound and dramatically punchier with even more telling use of the trumpets, partly the result of the smaller scale of the vocal forces used. That set also features boy trebles rather than women sopranos and generally feels more of a 'period' style of performance and sound.

This performance is also of very high quality. Three of the four anthems are separated on the disc by the other items which are the opening Queen of Sheba, the fourth organ concerto and the overture to Jephtha. Each of these are well played with the organ concerto being notably less wayward than the strange performance included on the BBC Proms DVD. That disc is to be avoided as one of the anthems is included as a 'bonus' and is very badly recorded in both sound and vision. It may be that there was a technical problem that could not be fixed in a 'live' event such as the Proms. A shame but absolutely remedied by this altogether better disc.

I would suggest therefore that this CD deserves to be given serious consideration by those interested in purchasing the anthems especially. They should also consider the alternative Pinnock version. Collectors should perhaps consider purchasing both as the versions are complementary to each other rather than than being competitive.

This is one of the most impressive recording of these truly remarkable anthems which I have come upon. The recording is particularly clear, and in Zadok the Priest admirably captures the great outburst of sound which follows that most compelling , prolonged build-up
it is a CD which I would strongly recommend, and have given to discerning freinds

I purchased another version, not on period instruments, and regretted it. This version is far superior, excellent singing and orchestral playing.
