By DAVID BRYSON TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 24 April 2004
Format: Audio CD
When it comes to being hard to please in a performance of Handel’s Zadok Icouldn’t easily rebut a charge of being the fusspot to end all fusspots.First, the tempo at the start must not be too slow, and that knocks outLeppard so far as I am concerned. It should measure out the steps of themonarch pacing up the aisle of Westminster Abbey. Secondly for me, therising 4-note phrases should break perceptibly into two pairs each. Thisdoes wonders for the tension and sense of climax. Thirdly there should bea big crescendo in the last bars before the chorus enters, and I am filledwith limitless dismay when Pritchard, in a mainly unexceptionable set ofthe four coronation anthems, actually perpetrates a diminuendo. Prestonscores triumphantly on all counts, so am I satisfied now? Not quite. Iwant a more spacious acoustic. Short as it is, and properly given by smallforces, Zadok the Priest is huge in its impact. This is a performance bythe choir of Westminster Abbey and it could have done with being recordedthere in the presence of a congregation.
That said, the remasteredsound from these performances from 1982 and 1985 is completely admirable.Just on its own it would put paid to any competition from the Pritchardset with the Huddersfield Choral Society, respectable though that is. Inany case the actual execution from the Westminster group is distinctlybetter, particularly as regards the choral work in which the ‘Oodersfieldchoir are no match at all for their Westminster rivals. The four anthemsare given in the order Zadok, The King Shall Rejoice, My Heart Is Inditingand finally Let Thy Hand, and Donald Burrows discusses the issue of theirproper order briefly in his part of the liner note.

This disc brings together recordings made in the 1980's as part of a reduction of three original discs down to two. At the same time, the original fine recordings have been remastered to good effect with added depth and space. This makes a particularly important improvement to the Coronation Anthems which previously came over as sonically lacking ideal breadth, depth and recorded weight in Zadok. The ears adjusted after that.

The original issues were the Water Music on its own, The Coronation Anthems on their own and the Fireworks coupled with the two horn concertos, thus three discs. The new issues bring this down to two discs by adding the Fireworks to the Water Music and adding the horn concertos to the Anthems as on this much better filled disc.

These recordings of the Anthems have, for me, stood head and shoulders over other recordings that I have heard. It is all a matter of emotional scale as opposed to physical scale. Preston simply chooses the correct speeds so that the introduction to Zadok has purpose by not going too slowly. The initial choral entry with the trumpets has real dramatic bite, spine-tingling, and that is true of the whole four anthems. The trumpets throughout have real regal edge instead of the more reticent sound balance and attack heard on other discs. That by the Sixteen, for example, has greater physical size but far less emotional weight and the trumpets simply are not allowed to bite as they do here. The soloists here are all good and the entire set is thrilling in its effect.

That sense of regal splendour is maintained in the two concertos which are also a good example of Handel maximising his income by some judicious recycling of previous material.

This is a must for all Handel lovers.
The anthems are beautifully done.The tempi is just right. Moved to tears.
The Concerti a due cori is the reason I bought this CD. I heard them at the London Promenade concerts and they are a delight. The interaction of the oboes is magical. Fantastic and worthy of five stars. A must buy. You will not be disappointed.
