Product Description

The King Shall Rejoice (SATB) By : George Frideric Handel : Music Sales America Series : SATB : Published by Novello : # NOV070131
The King Shall Rejoice by : George Frideric Handel

For the occasion of the coronation of King George II and Queen Caroline; which took place in Westminster Abbey on October 11; 1727; Handel wrote four splendid anthems and personally supervised their performance which was; according to all reports; one of great magnificence. The four anthems were enthusiastically received; and one or more of them has been performed at every British coronation since 1727. Anthem No. 2 ('The King Shall Rejoice'); although less well-known than Anthem No. 1; is an equally splendid example of Handel's ceremonial style - what Burney has affectionately termed his 'big bow-bow manner'. This work contains an opening Allegro; brilliant and elegant rather than pompous; a grandiose setting of 'Glory and great worship hast thou laid upon him'; and a lively fugal Alleluia as a conclusion. Arranged for four-part chorus of mixed voices with organ or piano accompaniment. Edited and with keyboard reduction by Edouard Silas.
