By DAVID BRYSON TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 Mar. 2004
Format: Audio CD
Given the right performance, Handel's Dettingen Te Deum is one of the most marvellous musical experiences I know. It was written, like the much slighter Dettingen anthem, to celebrate the comic-opera victory of King George the second over a startled Franco-Bavarian army in 1743. His Majesty's Anglo-Hanoverian troops had seemingly been trapped, but the King's horse bolted, his army took the spectacle for a heroic charge and followed with such gusto that the opposing forces snatched improbable defeat from the jaws of seeming victory. Thus cast as an unlikely war hero, the runcible monarch saw his chance and commissioned the two works from Handel.
A good many years ago a French performance with English soloists helped restore the Te Deum to the repertory after doing the necessary research into Handel's real intentions and restoring a proper balance between chorus and soloists to what had been presented previously as a lumbering and monotonous effort consisting almost entirely of chorus, and in consequence very understandably ignored. The performance was not particularly successful, and very dully recorded into the bargain, but it laid the groundwork for later interpreters more at home with the style. Listening to this absolutely superlative account from Preston and his Westminster Abbey performers I still feel a sense of gratitude to its predecessor for making me familiar with the work in the first place. There still seems to be a minor area of doubt regarding the precise nature of the some of the solos - the French version from Grimbert has two sopranos, Preston has a male alto but no women soloists and whether for that reason or simply through a better stylistic grasp the effect here is much preferable.

This setting of the 'Te Deum' oozes joy and thanksgiving. It needs to be performed with spirit, clarity and incisiveness. This is a splendid recording with very good soloists. The choir sings with great animation and the orchestra conveys a sense of celebration. I have listened to this performance many times and I do not think I shall ever tire of it, nor fail to experience the thrill it gives at certain points.

Exactly what you would expect from Handel tuneful and expansive writing giving all voices as much importance in the Choruses with the addition of the trademark Trumpet and excellent soloists. Simon Preston has the flair and knowhow how to get the best out of Handel. This should be in your collection.

A splendid piece of political art. A hymn of praise to the Prince of Peace it ain't but as a glorification of George II's (almost accidental) military victory it is magnificent. It must have been ear-shattering to hear it for the first time in the Chapel Royal - when GFH wrote it with St Paul's in mind.... Oh dear. What a disappointment.

I think perhaps the Hyperion recording has superseded this now but Pinnock's is still a favourite of mine and I couldn't be without either of these versions :-) I've the Hyperion on CD and now the Pinnock on download and CD!!
