The king shall rejoice! When George II was crowned King, he asked Handel to write the music – and the result was sheer sonic majesty. Expect trumpets, expect splendour and expect choral singing to make the spine tingle, as period ensemble The Sixteen perform Handel’s coronation anthems – including Zadok the Priest – in a celebration of the baroque era at its grandest, its most opulent and its most glorious.
