Notes & Reviews:

Such was Handel's reputation at the time of George II's coronation, that the King-to-be himself requested that he write the anthems for the occasion. This decision led to the composition of some of the most iconic choral music of all time. The Stadtsknappenkoor Elburg and Dutch Baroque Orchestra are conducted by Sir David Willcocks.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Grote Kerk, Vollenhove, The Netherlands (09/1996).
