The People Shall Hear! (Great Handel Choruses)
This stunning program of Baroque choral masterpieces comprises the best-loved moments from Handel’s oratorios and anthems, including ‘Zadok the Priest’ and the Hallelujah chorus. Solos from Alexander’s Feast and Athalia are sung by renowned Handel specialists Carolyn Sampson and Robin Blaze. The Bach Choir (which gave performances in Australia in 2008) is an institution in the golden British oratorio tradition, its musical directors including Ralph Vaughan Williams, Sir David Willcocks, and now David Hill, who conducts on this recording.
“the Bach Choir sing with appropriate vigour and spirit under David Hill’s enthusiastic direction…producing the obligatory tingle down the spine.” Gramophone
“The finely focused Bach Choir often sounds uncannily of almost chamber proportions, in 'The many rend the skies' (Alexander's Feast), and the wondering description of Christ's miracle in Handel's self-confessed favourite chorus, 'He saw the lovely youth', from Theodora.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2009 ****
