Notes & Reviews:

'A reconstruction, complete with a plethora of fanfares, drum processions, schoolboys shouting 'Vivat Rex!', and a great deal of bell clanging... all of it impressive music, well played and sung, and vivdly recorded' (The Sunday Times)

'Vividly atmospheric' (The Guardian)

'Robert King's magical history tour of Hanoverian London brings life to contemporary accounts of the coronation of George II. Outstanding accounts of Handel's Coronation Anthems and a joyful reading of Purcell's I was glad... a powerful experience' (Classic FM Magazine)

'The whole experience of listening repeatedly to this restaged coronation has been deeply satisfying and indeed moving. It is not like hearing a recording. You were there - it is as simple, and as wonderful, as that' (Fanfare, USA)

'Throughout the performances find King and his outstanding musicians at their most vibrant and dynamic, with choral and instrumental contributions that resoundlingly capture the splendour of the occasion' (Goldberg)

bbc.co.uk - Paul Cutts
King opts for slower tempos than expected, illuminating every stately arpeggio in the opening instrumental prelude until the explosive entry of the voices...And in the lovely anthem My heart is inditing, written specifically for the simultaneous coronation of Queen Caroline, the Choir of the King's Consort are at their sensitive best.
