Chandos Anthem No. 5 'I will magnify Thee', HWV 250a


Handel’s beautiful, intimate settings of liturgical texts written for the First Duke of Chandos are among his less well-known choral works—and are proved by this second volume from Trinity also to be among his loveliest. They are a perfect example of the composer’s English style heard in Acis & Galatea and oratorios such as Judas Maccabaeus.

The soloists on this recording include internationally acclaimed Handelians Susan Gritton and Iestyn Davies, and the young tenor Thomas Hobbs, whose warm, lyrical tone is perfect for this repertoire. Trinity College Choir Cambridge sing with their usual youthful exuberance tempered with elegance, style and precision, under the expert guidance of Stephen Layton.

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“Layton directs his young singers with such a perfect control of texture and rhythm that there's no hint of stodginess” Gramophone Magazine, July 2013

“Layton has drilled his singers to perfection in this trio of Handel's Chandos Anthems, making every word distinct and every crisp consonant a taut springboard on which to propel Handel's irresistible rhythm...Thomas Hobbs is the stand-out soloist” The Observer, 8th July 2013

“It says much for Layton's skill that he has managed to retain their companionable intimacy despite super-sizing his own resources to a choir of more than 30 singers with orchestra to match...Layton is a peerless Handelian, master of the architecture, yet constantly alert to enlivening nuances that only seem obvious with hindsight.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2013 ****

The Choir of the Grosvenor Chapel, Richard Hobson (director)

The Grosvenor Chapel is a wonderful jewel of an early eighteenth-century building in Mayfair in central London. Its unique and original design influenced the architecture of many churches built in the US.

From its opening in 1731 the Grosvenor Chapel has enjoyed professional choral music of an enviable standard and this recording features a selection of choral music drawn from the wide range of repertoire sung by the renowned Grosvenor Chapel Choir in the Sunday morning service each week.

Over four hundred years of English music is represented, with works from Thomas Tallis to contemporary British composer, Jonathan Dove, together with an orchestral Mass by Mozart, and features the first recording of ‘Come, Thou Holy Paraclete’ by Francis Jackson, written for the Grosvenor Chapel Choir.

“Under his direction they achieve a purity of tone, perfection of blend, and security of intonation rarely heard elsewhere” Gramophone

“It is a matter for speculation whether David Willcocks is one man or several men –all equally dedicated to the greater glory of music in all its parts. Whether as conductor, organist, or don, everything he does bears the hallmark of superb professionalism and careful scholarship” Gramophone

King’s College Choir are the most famous choir in the world. This set of the complete Argo recordings celebrates David Willcocks’ tenure from 1957-1973 and includes some of the most beautiful choral music sung with the choir’s trademark richness and purity of sound.

Included are many of the choral greats –Bach’s St John Passion, Tallis’ Spem in Alium, Haydn’s Nelson Mass, and Roy Goodman in the most famous recording of Allegri’s Miserere - all in the glorious acoustics of King’s College Chapel.

Six of these albums are released on CD for the first time – David Willcocks’ 1964 Festival of Lessons & Carols and Tye Masses and four albums from Boris Ord, David Willcocks’ predecessor. Willcocks’ St John Passion is also released on CD internationally for the first time (was previously released in the UK only).

Notes are by John Rutter (fellow arranger of Christmas Carols with Willcocks), Roy Goodman (treble in Allegri’s Miserere), Francis Warner (choral scholar under Boris Ord), Simon Eadon (Decca Engineer) and Ronald Corp (composer, conductor and choral specialist).
