This work, full of flourishes for choir and orchestra, is performed alongside his famous coronation anthem Zadok the Priest. Handel’s music is paired with music by Henry Purcell including his anguished Lord, how long wilt that be angry? – a kaleidoscope of chromatic invention, and the triumphant anthem Rejoice in the Lord alway.
