Händel - The Messiah - 04 [High Quality Sound] [Lyrics]
Händel - The Messiah - 04 [High Quality Sound] [Lyrics] Conductor: Cristopher Hogwood Soprano 1: Judith Nelson Soprano 2: Emma Kirkby Contralto: Carolyn Watkinson Tenor: Paul Elliott Bass: David Thomas Organist and Master of the chorists: Simon Preston The Choir Of Westminster Abbey The Academy of Ancient Music Directed for video and television by Roy Tipping © 1982 BBC Television and NVC ARTS, a Warner Music Group Company. DVD avaiable at www.kultur.com ---------------------------------------- -- In Handel's day this best-loved of all oratorios was performed by fewer than forty instrumentalists and a chorus, less than thrirty strong, of boy trebles and men. That is the tradition to wich Cristopher Hogwood has returned in his performances with the Academy of Ancient Music. Members of the Academy all play instruments of the period or accurate modern copies. In this recording the choruses are sung by boy trebles and male altos, tenors and basses, members of the Choir of the Westminster Abbey. The soloists improve embellishments in the arias and, in certain cases, join in the singing of the choruses, just as they would have done 240 years ago. The recording takes full advantage not only of Westminter Abbey's fine acoustic qualities, but also of the incomparable architetural splendor of the surroundings.

Handel Sarabande in D Minor HWV 437 - Francesco Teopini - Classical
Handel Sarabande in D Minor HWV 437 - Francesco Teopini - Classical This is me playing the "Sarabande" from Handel's keyboard suite in D minor HWV 437 for harpsichord, transcribed for classical guitar by the famous american classical guitarist Christopher Parkening..... The theme that Handel used for this very famous piece of music is based on the very well known anonymous piece called " La Folia".... This Sarabande was also used in Stanley Kubrick's movie Barry Lindon (1975), which made this piece more famous thank to the amazing orchestral arrangement made by Leonard Rosenman.... I hope you will like it!!! :-D

Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne - Handel
Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne - Handel Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne. Performers are Andreas Scholl-Countertenor. Hèléne Guilmette-Soprano. Andreas Wolf-Bass. Vocal Consort Berlin-Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin under the direction of Marcus Creed The composition of odes to celebrate the new year and the birthday of the monarch was a long standing tradition in England, as a number of works by Purcell and others readily testify. Normally the task of composing such occasional works fell to the Master of the King's (or Queen's) Musick, a position held in the early part of the eighteenth century by John Eccles. However Eccles seems to have provided no such works between 1711 and 1715, a gap filled probably in 1713 for the monarch's birthday by Handel. He had returned to England for a second visit late in 1712, quickly catching the mood of the nation by composing a Te Deum and Jubilate for the service of thanksgiving to celebrate the Peace of Utrecht. It was possibly the success of this piece, the commissioning of which from Handel rather than a native composer has puzzled Handel scholars, which led to him being asked to provide a celebratory ode for the birthday of Queen Anne, February 6. Both the Utrecht Te Deum and the Ode "Eternal Source of Light Divine" demonstrate how clearly he had assimilated the English choral style of Purcell, the sacred work being clearly indebted to the English composer's well-known Te Deum.
