Handel wrote the impressive 'Coronation Anthems' for George II. At the express wish of the new ruler he took British citizenship in order to meet the formal requirements for the task. Their festive character brought the work exceptional popularity even after the coronation. And hence 'Zadok the Priest' has not only been heard at every British coronation ceremony since, but also inspired the writer of the theme music for the UEFA Champions League! The present recording is a live production from the 2014 International Händel Festival in Göttingen, highly praised by the critics and the audience. Laurence Cummings, the Festival's Artistic Director, a renowned Handel specialist stands at the helm of the Göttingen Festival Orchestra and the NDR Choir.
