From 1717 to 1718 Handel was resident composer at Cannons, a country estate to the north of London. During this time he wrote the so-called Chandos Anthems, a set of eleven 'Anglican Cantatas' with instrumental accompaniment.

The Lord is my light (HWV 255), with its eleven movements, is not only the longest composition in the set, but it also has the largest proportion of newly composed material.

This anthem, published with the Urtext of the Halle Handel Edition, is especially noteworthy for its varied and self-sufficient orchestral accompaniment, which lends a fitting backdrop to the festive chorus and equally festive solo numbers. Both the full score and the vocal score contain a German translation alongside the original English. Scoring: Soloists (STT), Chorus (SATTB), 2 Recorders, Oboe, Strings, Continuo.
