G. F. Handel: Zadok The Priest HWV 258 Coronation Anthem (Violin II)

Books | Orchestra, SATB

Publisher: Bärenreiter
Format: Sheet Music | Part

Zadok The Priest HWV 258 (BA10258) and The King shall rejoice HWV 259 (BA10259) are the best-known of the four coronation anthems that Handel wrote for the crowning of George II in London (1727). HWV 258 accompanied the king’s anointment, HWV 260 his actual coronation.

Thanks to their festive and majestic structure befitting the occasion as well as their spacious scoring for large choir and orchestra, it comes as no surprise that motifs from Zadok The Priest have found their way into the official hymn of the UEFA Champions League.

The present editions by the authoritative Handel scholar Stephan Blaut are the first to offer these two anthems based on the Urtext from the Halle Handel Edition.

  • Bilingual Forewords (Ger/Eng).
  • Idiomatic Piano reductions.
  • Based on the Halle Handel Edition.
  • Full score, parts and vocal score available for sale.

      The concept of publishing three sonatas on the current syllabus together in one book is a good one. The music layout is clear too. And the Grade 8 piece K162 (the one I required this time) is a lovely sonata to play!
      The price is too high. Almost £10 for about ten pages of music is excessive. Since there are so many Scarlatti sonatas to choose from, and the piano syllabus changes every two years, it is expensive for music teachers to keep a stock of the current pieces for each year. With a bit of forward planning, maybe a larger group of Scarlatti pieces for the higher grades could be identified to be used over, say, a six or ten year period (in successive 2-year lists during that time) and published together in future?
