Product Description

Nobody could do Royal celebrations quite like Handel: witness his perennially popular Water Music and Fireworks Music. Beating the French was always a good excuse for a musical knees-up, so after the battle of Dettingen in 1743, in which British and Hanoverian troops under the leadership of George II no less, trounced them once again, Handel was quick to catch the nation's celebratory mood with a joyful English-language setting of the Te Deum ("We praise thee, O Lord"). It's an exuberant work in the tradition of his large-scale oratorios (The Messiah had been premiered just two years earlier) given a suitably boisterous rendition here by the Swiss Radio choir, soloists and period-instrument group, Ensemble Vanitas. The reverberant live recording in the Church of San Sempliciano, Milan isn't kind to either the soloists' or choir's English diction, but the overall tenor of the performance makes up in energy what it lacks in such detail. The Dixit Dominus is a smaller-scale work, written much earlier in Handel's life during his stay in Rome in 1707 when the young composer was still absorbing the Italianate style of Scarlatti and Corelli. Again, this is a live recording, but the acoustic of Lugano Cathedral suits the music well, as is only to be expected for a professedly sacred work (the victorious boasting of the Te Deum is unashamedly secular, despite the text). It's a fine coupling, and if the performances aren't especially subtle, neither is the music. --Mark Walker

5.0 out of 5 stars DIXIT HANDEL 3 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Thus spake Handel. Thirty years ago there were few recordings of the Dettingen Te Deum, and they were all bad. However an LP was issued in France of all places that at least restored Handel's performing intentions, and it paved the way for Simon Preston's fine and idiomatic Westminster Abbey account on DG Archiv in 1984. It was through this recording that it dawned on me that the Dettingen Te Deum is one of the greatest pieces of music that I know, but familiarity bred a craving for even better. In particular I was looking for a richer tone from the chorus at the start, and also for a slightly firmer grip on the instrumental rhythm here and there, particularly in the numerous imitative sequences. My quest has led me to obtain the Academy of Ancient Music version under Stephen Layton, the Naxos issue also containing a smaller and earlier Te Deum - and this superlative effort from Fasolis. I eagerly awarded Preston 5 stars when I reviewed his set some years ago, and I do not un-award the rating now. However what I think I detect, or I hope I detect, from the recent versions is a sense that I am not alone in my idea of the stature of the piece, and that in the new millennium the inspiration is spreading from composer to interpreters.

All these three new sets benefit from better and more vivid recording than Preston got, and that sense is particularly striking at the start of this disc. To put it mildly, Fasolis gives the drums their head, and it recalls to me Tovey's expression `a sledgehammer tattoo'. I lap it up like this, but be warned - you might find it o-t-t. Then the colossal choral entry, the great proclamations separated by a long pause measured by a ticking beat on the violins, has all the tone I was looking for. To cap that, the imitative entries on the trumpet are ideally firm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Superb! 21 May 2011
By capezio
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a great surprise on the classic firmament, considering the English lead on their country born composers, like Haendel, especially because the artists here aren't Gardiner and the Monteverdi Choir, but a mix of Swiss-Italian singers / ensemble.
Their intrerpretation is full of vigour and English pomp, very well suited for Haendel music. Sampling the tracks on Amazon I found this recording more captivating than Gardiner interpretation of the Dixit Dominus and the it captures the spacious incredibly acoustics of the Chiesa (church) di San Sempliciano in Milan. It's one of the finest recording I've ever heard. You'll surely be impressed, specially by the Te Deum.
The choir of the Swiss Radio has "just" 175 year of tradition and maybe the oldest chamber choral continuously active actually.
The soloist are either very good and they make a nice balance with the choir and the little ensemble.
It's interesting to hear on the Te Deum some melodies that Haendel will use on "Israel in Egypt" (track 2 borrowed from Stradella), and on "Salomon" (track 4), some years ahead.
The CD case is very well finished and the booklet has detailed information of the composition context, artists and words of the works sung.
A must for all that appreciate Haendel compositions, and enjoy been inside a cathedral just in front his stereo equipment. Recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handel's Dixit Dominus 21 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
I bought this for Dixit Dominus. I had a wonderful recording on L'Oiseau Lyre, years ago and was looking for a recording of similar brilliance. I was not disappointed. This is a sparkling performance.
