'An imaginative programme of infrequently performed music by a great composer is always welcome, and this one should make a wide appeal'. --Gramophone

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A marvellous demonstration of Handelian ingenuity.... 7 septembre 2006
Par William - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have immense feelings of joy when ever I listen to this CD. Some of the music on it was previously unknown to me before I had purchased the CD, but it is has now come to be a definite favourite.

As the title suggests, this is a collection of rather grand music, Handel at his most ceremonial. It is the style with which he became most associated in the years after his death, where an image of grandiose surrounded him, greatly sustained by the almost biblical status the Victorian age gave him. While it has some consensus now that this image probably wasn't helpful to Handel in the long run, it is still good to hear a rousing Handel anthem now and again.

King is at his best in these marvellous interpretations. He breathes new life into almost anything he conducts. Certainly this should be no exception. Of particular note, is the anthem 'Sing unto God'. After an admirable introduction on the violins, a lone counter-tenor sings but four introspectively powerful notes, before the full and breath-taking entry of the choir and orchestra combined, in massive block chords. It is a marvellous demonstration of Handelian ingenuity, in a deceptive appearance of simplicity. The entire anthem is incredible, and one can only imagine with what wonder the first audiences listened to it.

It's a shame also that the 'Anthem for the birthday of Queen Anne' isn't more well known. Handel's treatment is expansive, and the choral refrains are remarkably varied, the first being my personal favourite, with it's imposing entry, and highly skilled counterpoint.

I warmly and whole-heartedly recommend this CD to all, in what is a stunning example of excellence, and a triumph for Robert King.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 SUNDRY KINGS AND QUEENS 10 novembre 2012
Par DAVID BRYSON - Publié sur Amazon.com
Queen Anne, Queen Caroline, King George I, Prince Frederick and Princess Augusta may not have been terribly musical themselves but Queen Anne, presumably on advice, appointed the young German Mr Handel to the lucrative post of Master of the Queen's Musick. She did not last long from then to her death and burial in a square coffin (the poor lady suffered from dropsy), but Mr Handel's luck was in again, because the new monarch was none other than his recent patron the Elector of Hanover, now assuming the vacant position of King of England and the title of George I.

This an excellent issue, not least because the three royal works that it contains are not very well known nowadays. The Birthday Ode for Queen Anne surely must have impressed even that unmusical monarch with its spectacular opening number - Eternal Source, a slow and languorous duet between singer and trumpet. To find out a little more about this composition and its two companions, let me refer you to the other King making a thoroughly welcome appearance here, the director and eminent specialist in baroque music Robert King. Robert King's essay is of a kind that collectors of his Handel oratorios will be familiar with - knowledgeable, enthusiastic, informative without overloading the detail, and pleasantly written. Full texts are provided, albeit in small print, and the text of the Queen Caroline Te Deum, which is the shortest work of the three, is unabridged, the same text as Handel sets in the mighty Dettingen Te Deum lasting three quarters of an hour.

The most majestic work of the three is the anthem for the wedding of Prince Frederick and Princess Augusta of Saxe-Coburg. This dates from twenty and more years later than the other two, and is in the familiar manner of the Coronation Anthems, with one of those final wind-ups that Handel could do like nobody else. Robert King of course knows Handel's idiom in all its variety inside-out, and I hope and believe that nobody will be disappointed with anything in the performance. The soloists are tried and trusted too, and if James Bowman and Michael George are not quite in their best voice in their first number that impression is well dispelled later. Gillian Fisher and John Mark Ainsley seem to me in fine form from start to finish, and the orchestral work is predictably professional and sound in style without being undernourished in the manner of some early `period' renderings. Similarly, tempi are reasonable at all points. This was 1988, and by that time the urge to set speed records had worn off among the `period' specialists.

The 1988 recorded sound is fine by me. It may not be spectacular, but I was not looking for that. I can be quite content with good balance and faithful tone, and I am given all of that here. Let me compliment the chorus in particular, who have some quite taxing work, or what might once have seemed taxing. That era was probably behind us in 1988, and we can enjoy the stylish rendition of the finest choral sound there has ever been to this day. All in all several relaxed hearings have not so far turned up anything that I feel like criticising, and I feel as confident as I can expect to feel that things are going to stay that way.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 rare material, fine performance 2 mars 2006
Par Robert D. Harmon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Beautiful work by the King's Consort and the Oxford choir, of some fairly hard-to-find and worthwhile works by Handel: Ode to Queen Anne's Birthday, Te Deum, Sing Unto God. I prefer a little more up-tempo on the first Ode aria, Eternal Source of Light Divine, but that's a personal quibble and I highly recommend this album to anyone interested in baroque in general, baroque vocal works, and Handel in particular.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent early Handel 26 septembre 2013
Par Sid Nuncius - Publié sur Amazon.com
A favourable review of a King's Consort recording of Handel won't surprise anyone, and (by no means for the first time) I completely agree with David Bryson's excellent review on this page. This is a very fine disc of early works by Handel, whose music was already showing that mastery of melody, harmonic invention and brilliant use of instrumentation which makes him a truly great composer. There is some truly excellent stuff here, from the wonderfully beautiful soprano and trumpet duet which opens Eternal Source of Light Divine to the mighty closing choral "Alleluia, amen" of Sing Unto God. It's a lovely programme.

The performances are excellent. You would expect this from the array of star soloists and they don't disappoint, but The King's Consort is also littered with names like Catherine Mackintosh, Mark Caudle, Crispian Steele-Perkins, James O'Donnell and other giants of the early music scene who make this something really special. It is all beautifully judged and superbly performed. I'm sorry to gush, but I really do think this is exemplary Handel playing and singing.

With Hyperion's usual excellent recorded sound and good, interesting notes, this is a cracking disc all round and very warmly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Music no Handel lover should be without 30 mars 2009
Par Kariba - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a delightful album. The choir sings with enthusiasm and the soloists are a who's who of British Baroque performers. Of particular note is Michael George, who is in fine voice and who has one of the most beautiful solos on the album -- Thy Wife Shall be as the Fruitful Vine -- accompanied by Jane Coe on cello.

The recording is spacious, yet the sound is clear and focused. Highly recommended.
