The World's Greatest Music
Katherine introduces the three undisputed giants of the Baroque era - and the music that everyone should have in their collection.
Handel composed his four coronation anthems between September and October 1727 for King George II, producing some of the most spine-tingling choral music of the Baroque period. Zadok the Priest, Let Thy Hand Be Strengthened, The King Shall Rejoice, and My Heart Is Inditing were written as four separate pieces, but are now often published as a collection. Zadok the Priest is by far the most popular of the four. Its adrenaline rush of an introduction, with its teasing promise of release only to start again, is only a warm-up for what is to come.
