Coronation Anthems

   Set of four anthems composed by George Frideric Handel and performed on 11 October 1727 for the coronation of King George II. Scored for large five- to seven-voice chorus, woodwinds, trumpets, timpani, and strings, they introduced to the English public the weight of choral sound associated with Handel’s later oratorios.
