Le 20 février 1727, George Ier signe l'acte de naturalisation de Georg Friedrich Haendel; le roi décède le 11 juin, George II lui succède, et le nouveau citoyen anglais se voit confier la composition de la musique du couronnement du nouveau souverain.
Les partitions des quatre psaumes de la liturgie anglicane -Zadok the Priest, The King shall rejoice, My heart is inditing, Let thy hand be strengthened- seront exécutées le 11 octobre 1727 avec des moyens exceptionnels. Zadok va s'imposer dans les cérémonies de couronnement ultérieures et devenir un «tube» classique; cette composition a d'ailleurs inspiré l'hymne de la Ligue des Champions de l'UEFA!
Le «Choir of Westminster Abbey» et «The English Concert» nous font vivre avec brio cette célébration, sous la direction de Simon Preston, Trevor Pinnock ayant laissé le pupitre pour tenir l'orgue.
En bonus, l'ensemble britannique fondé en 1973 nous propose, cette fois sous la direction de Pinnock, les concerti a due cori; hélas, le minutage limité d'un CD n'a permis l'enregistrement que de deux concertos sur trois, le HWW 332 ayant été «sacrifié». Ces œuvres écrites dans les années 1740, recyclant en partie du matériel antérieur, étaient destinées à servir d'entractes aux œuvres chorales.
Ce CD qui réunit les «Coronation anthems» et les concerti enregistrés respectivement en 1981 et 1984, allie la maîtrise de «l'authenticité» à des prises de son de très haut niveau.
Une interprétation modèle qui n'a pas pris une seule ride...

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Handel Coronation Anthems 14 janvier 2012
Par Iatros - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
After seeing the movie "Young Victoria", I was struck by the music as she walked down the aisle for her coronation, as well as excerpts at various times. I found that the first music was Handel's 'Zadok the Priest'. This album has good renditions of the four coronation anthems, and additional music of Handel. I would prefer a CD that has more presence of the choir on the anthems, but this version is pleasing to the ear.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Handel with a full sense of ceremony and spectacle even with reduced resources 17 décembre 2013
Par I. Giles - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This disc brings together recordings made in the 1980's as part of a reduction of three original discs down to two. At the same time, the original fine recordings have been remastered to good effect with added depth and space. This makes a particularly important improvement to the Coronation Anthems which previously came over as sonically lacking ideal breadth, depth and recorded weight in Zadok. The ears adjusted after that.

The original issues were the Water Music on its own, The Coronation Anthems on their own and the Fireworks coupled with the two Concertos for 2 Choirs, thus three discs. The new issues bring this down to two discs by adding the Fireworks to the Water Music and adding two of the three concertos for two choirs (of instruments) to the Anthems as on this much better filled disc.

These recordings of the Anthems have, for me, stood head and shoulders over other recordings that I have heard. It is all a matter of emotional scale as opposed to physical scale. Preston simply chooses the correct speeds so that the introduction to Zadok has purpose by not going too slowly. The initial choral entry with the trumpets has real dramatic bite, spine-tingling, and that is true of the whole four anthems. The trumpets throughout have real regal edge instead of the more reticent sound balance and attack heard on other discs. That by the Sixteen, for example, has greater physical size but far less emotional weight and the trumpets simply are not allowed to bite as they do here. The soloists here are all good and the entire set is thrilling in its effect.

That sense of regal splendour is maintained in the two concertos which are also a good example of Handel maximising his income by some judicious recycling of previous material. Listeners will have fun identifying ideas originating in works such as the Messiah for instance. The playing here is terrific.

The concertos for 'Due Cori' heard here were almost certainly played as additional music during the Judas Maccabaeus, Joshua and Alexander Balus to add some variety for the audiences. In this respect they fulfilled a similar function to some of his previous organ concertos for example. The choirs, although described as for two choirs, are in fact for three choirs - a string one and two wind ones and that construction is used for all three such concertos that Handel wrote, two of which are heard here (numbers 2 and 3).

This is a marvellous disc and fully captures the splendour of Handel's imagination and concepts. The obvious companion to this disc is that with the Water Music and Fireworks combined. I would therefore suggest that both of these discs deserve to considered as top considerations for purchase.

NOT MY PREFERENCE, BUT A GOOD RECORDING NONE THE LESS

The coronation service for King George II and his consort Queen Caroline at Westminster Abbey on October 11, 1727, was an occasion of great magnificence as was the music Handel provided for the ceremonies. The composer William Boyce looked back on the 1727 service as the scene of the 'first Grand Musical Performance'.

'Zadok the Priest' was the proper anthem for the Anointing, and 'My Heart is inditing' was specific to the coronation of the Queen. According to the order of service, 'The King Shall Rejoice' should have been performed at the Recognition, but Handel chose to have it done at the Crowning. Trumpets and timpani were taken from the main body of performers for this part of the ceremony, with the result that 'Let Thy Hand be strengthened' did not include these instruments.

The two 'Concerti a due cori' (concertos for two instrumental choirs) are in fact, for three groups of instruments: a string band, and two winds; one each of two oboes, bassoon and two horns.

This disc is very excellently put together by Trevor Pinnock, but I do have some personal critiques to make: I thought that in the first two anthems the percussion (tympani) and brass were much to heavy upon the entrance of the choir; so much so that the balance was tilted in favor of the instruments resulting in not being able to comprehend the words of the anthems. In the 2nd anthem 'The King shall rejoice' the tempo was a bit fast for word sense; one misses much of the inner interest of the anthem. In the final two anthems 'My Heart is inditing' and Let they hand be strengthened' the instruments were fewer and lighter in accompaniment and were much to my liking!

Both of the instrumental concerti were well played; I much preferred the first to the second; it was much more interesting and not so repetitive. All things considered, it's really a good recording. But I still prefer the King's College Choir 1982 recording under the direction of Sir Philip Ledger.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Music to please a thousand Kings. 30 mars 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

All I have to say is WOW! I cannot believe how beautiful these anthems are! They are so beautiful, and take me back to the actuall coronation ceremony of King George II! The music is always beautiful. The Concerti a due cori is also performed very well by the English concert with Trevor Pinnock. Of the four coronation anthems, "My heart is inditing" and "Zadok the Priest", the queens anthems, are my favorite. These two are absolutely beautiful. "My heart is inditing" starts off in such a beautiful manner, soloists with the chorus, and underneath it, is a beautiul motif with the accomp. It is beautiful, and "Zadok the Preist" with its great 1:00 intro. is flawless. About the performers, the orchestra, is very good in handling the beautiful phrases that Handel had set out for them. The Chorus is also good, although I think that the use of Treble's is not a really welcomed idea. The soloists are also good. The Concerti a due cori are performed very well, although the "Judas Maccebeus" concerto is performed a little under tempi. Buy this recording, if you want great music, great performers, and want to be a king/queen for 40 minutes!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 FAMILIAR AND LESS FAMILIAR 23 mars 2004
Par DAVID BRYSON - Publié sur Amazon.com

When it comes to being hard to please in a performance of Handel's Zadok I couldn't easily rebut a charge of being the fusspot to end all fusspots. First, the tempo at the start must not be too slow, and that knocks out Leppard so far as I am concerned. It should measure out the steps of the monarch pacing up the aisle of Westminster Abbey. Secondly for me, the rising 4-note phrases should break perceptibly into two pairs each. This does wonders for the tension and sense of climax. Thirdly there should be a big crescendo in the last bars before the chorus enters, and I am filled with limitless dismay when Pritchard, in a mainly unexceptionable set of the four coronation anthems, actually perpetrates a diminuendo. Preston scores triumphantly on all counts, so am I satisfied now? Not quite. I want a more spacious acoustic. Short as it is, and properly given by small forces, Zadok the Priest is huge in its impact. This is a performance by the choir of Westminster Abbey and it could have done with being recorded there in the presence of a congregation.
That said, the remastered sound from these performances from 1982 and 1985 is completely admirable. Just on its own it would put paid to any competition from the Pritchard set with the Huddersfield Choral Society, respectable though that is. In any case the actual execution from the Westminster group is distinctly better, particularly as regards the choral work in which the `Oodersfield choir are no match at all for their Westminster rivals. The four anthems are given in the order Zadok, The King Shall Rejoice, My Heart Is Inditing and finally Let Thy Hand, and Donald Burrows discusses the issue of their proper order briefly in his part of the liner note. For me it is no real issue at all, and obviously the virtue of cd technology is that they can be sequenced as any listener prefers. In every single respect but the acoustic right at the beginning I award full marks plus to this account of the anthems.
The `concertos for two choirs' deserve to be a lot better known especially now that there are horn-players in abundance who are equal to the startling technical difficulty of their parts. What the term denotes is that there are two small wind bands, used antiphonally for the most part, in addition to the main string band. In total there are three concertos of this type, and nos 2 and 3, the two with the horn parts, are provided here. The note on these works is contributed by Stanley Sadie, and based on the evidence that Dr Sadie provides, it certainly seems likely that these concertos were intended, like the organ concertos and the opus 6 concerti grossi, for performance in the intervals of the composer's oratorios. # 3 seems fairly clearly to have been given with Judas Maccabaeus, and my goodness if the horn-players were up to it what an impact it must have made! As regards # 2, the two candidates appear to be Joshua and Alexander Balus, nobody seems to be very clear which. One way or another I am certainly pleased that scholarly opinion now inclines towards the view that the works were publicly performed in Handel's lifetime, indeed in his personal presence. # 3 may be mainly an original composition - Sadie is not aware of most of their musical material elsewhere. # 2 is, as he rightly says, a bit of a puzzle. The material is all reworked stuff, but what exactly was Handel's game? It includes a slightly tweaked instrumental transcription of Lift Up Your Heads, which most of the audience would have recognised instantly, but the first two movements apparently come from Esther, 30 years previously. Neither as a pot-pourri of well-known numbers nor as an attempt to pass off old lamps as new does it make any consistent sense. From a historical point of view the issue is absorbing, from a musical point of view two and a half centuries on it doesn't amount to a row of haricots. These concertos have the potential to be as popular as the Brandenburgs and I for one would happily trade a hundred performances of the familiar Vivaldi efforts for just one of these. The performances, directed by Pinnock, are simply superb, the horn-playing in particular being thrilling, with that particular frisson that comes from appreciating the whiff of danger that goes with it. Any Handelian ought to have this set. For the as yet unconverted there is something waiting that they could do with getting to know. I have another fine set of all three concertos by Leppard and the ECO, but this wins outright at all points.
