'Well, what a surprise - a divine surprise! I have delighted in immersing myself in the world of Handel for more than forty years now. But I must admit that I experienced yet another lesson in strength and joy when I toured and recorded the Dettingen Te Deum and the Coronation Anthems', says Hervé Niquet. As a lover of large orchestral formations, he has assembled a number of instrumentalists and singers close to the (gigantic) forces used at the premiere, with a large band of oboes, bassoons and trumpets, and assigned the solo arias to the entire 'chapel'. Niquet speaks of 'the glittering power of this ceremonial music concocted by a Handel conscious of placing the best of his genius at the service of the crown and of history', and he in turn invests all his enthusiasm and expressiveness in these works combining 'grace and strength'. Fans of Champions League football will recognize in Zadok the Priest the theme of that competition's anthem!
