Book DescriptionThis is the first major study of Handel's English church music. It covers well-known works such as Zadok the Priest, but also introduces an engaging but little-known repertory. Handel's Chapel Royal music was the result of a close but changing relationship with Britain's Hanoverian royal family. The story of the political background is complemented by an investigation of the circumstances of Handel's performances.
