Description

These four splendid anthems were composed for the coronation of George II in October 1727 and have since retained a position at the heart of the English choral tradition. The popular anthem Zadok thePriest has been performed at all subsequent coronations, and Handel's other contributions to the royal occasion - Let thy hand be strengthenedThe King shall rejoice, and My heart isinditing - have the same majestic grandeur, with affecting contrasts between different sections of the sacred texts. The editor, Clifford Bartlett, has corrected various inconsistencies in Handel's score, andcompletedetails of sources and editorial method, additional performance notes, and a critical commentary are included.
