Composed for the coronation of George II in 1727, the Handel Coronation Anthems are a masterpiece amongst masterpieces in the choral repertoire. Come and join Charnwood Voices for the day to learn and perform them.
Handel’s Coronation Anthems:
The King Shall Rejoice
Zadok the Priest
Let Thy Hand Be Strengthened
My Heart Is Inditing
All choral singers have heard of Zadok the Priest, and most have probably sung it at some time or other. But how many people are as familiar with the other three great anthems which form this Handelian tour de force?
