Reviews of this publication:


* George Frideric Handel

From 1717 to 1718 Handel was resident composer at Cannons, a country
estate to the
north of London. During this time he wrote the so-called Chandos
Anthems, a set of eleven
“Anglican cantatas” with instrumental accompaniment. “The Lord is my
light” (HWV 255),
with its eleven movements, is not only the longest composition in
the set, it also has the
largest proportion of newly composed material.

This anthem, published with the Urtext of the Halle Handel Edition,
is especially noteworthy
for its varied and self-sufficient orchestral accompaniment, which
lends a fitting backdrop to
the festive chorus and equally festive solo numbers.

Both the full score and the vocal score contain a German translation
alongside the
original English.


Soloists (STT), chorus (SATTB), 2 recorders, oboe, strings, continuo
