Composed in 1748, Handel’s oratorio on the wise and righteous King Solomon is one of the most lavish works he created in this genre.
He attached special importance to the choir: rarely does Handel’s music have such extended choral numbers, ranging from homophonic settings to choruses of jubilation in eight contrapuntal parts.
