"He is the greatest composer that ever lived. I would uncover my head and kneel before his tomb" (Beethoven on Handel)

Universally considered the greatest composer of his time by artists and public alike, Handel's ceremonial music, sacred music, vocal works and oratorios have remained popular with musicians and audiences ever since. This 2 CD cornucopia shedss light on all that and more, including Zadok the Priest (sung at every British Coronation since 1727), Water Music, Fireworks Music and the finest arias and extracts from his choral works and operas. The Messiah has been plundered by file makers for decades, while Sarabande (CD2, track 3) featured on a recent global Levi Jeans television commercial.
