Handel’s Coronation Anthems & Ceremonial Music by Purcell, Blow, Tallis, Gibbons & others
2x SACD Reissue 2001 | Label: Hyperion | Catalog No.: SACDA67286

“Why present just Handel’s Coronation Anthems for King George II when you can present the whole Coronation?” seems to be the proposition that underlies this two-disc set, entitled The Coronation of King George II, 1727. And, thrillingly performed by Robert King directing the King’s Consort and the Choir of the King’s Consort, there seems no good reason not to, and every good reason to, do just that. King, who has led many stirring recordings of Handel’s oratorios in his time, turns in splendid performances of the four Coronation Anthems, along with superb performances of ceremonial choral music by Tallis, Purcell, Gibbons, Blow, Farmer, and Child. But those are just the highlights of the recording, which opens with the tolling of the bells of Westminster Abbey and closes with the tolling of the bells of London and includes along the way trumpet fanfares led by the inestimable Crispian Steele-Perkins, drum processions led by Charles Fullbrook, spoken acclamations by Andrew Carwood as the Archbishop of Canterbury, and shouts of praise by the assembled multitudes. This set may not be for everyone — enemies of the monarchy need not tune in — and may not be for every day — a steady diet of fanfares and processions may be much for some listeners — but when you are in the mood to hear royalty enthroned, this set cannot be surpassed.

The Moody Blues’ 1967 concept album set a new standard for symphonic rock, marrying the band’s early R&B stylings with lush orchestral sounds, complex songforms, and epic interludes by the London Festival Orchestra. This hi-definition release adds even more depth to this essential, brilliantly recorded album.

Johannes Somary & English Chamber Orchestra – Handel: The Water Music + Royal Fireworks Music (2004) [2.0 & 5.0] {PS3 ISO + FLAC}

Vanguard Classics Series | Label: Artemis Classics, Ltd. | Catalog No.: ATM CD 1519

Regard this Vanguard “ultra analog” CD with caution. Having Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks in its original scoring is an obvious attraction, but Water Music is drastically shortchanged in the 11-movement suite offered here. Since it is possible to fit the complete Water Music and Music for the Royal Fireworks on a single disc, the loss of the Suite in G major and half of the Suite in D major is unreasonable. Be that as it may, Johannes Somary and the English Chamber Orchestra offer fairly enjoyable performances, though modern instruments are used and some niceties of Baroque interpretation — such as swung rhythms and freely improvised ornamentation — are used sparingly. The woodwind and brass sonorities in Fireworks should be more impressive and massive, but the microphone placement puts the horns and trumpets rather close and makes the choirs of oboes, bassoons, and serpents seem remote and echoic. The 1973 analog recordings have been cleaned of tape hiss, though few other enhancements are evident.

The band started as “Sweet OK Sister” in 1968 as a school band with singer and songwriter Rob Douw, who soon thereafter left. The remaining members continued as a more serious musical quartet under the name Supersister. Their style was progressive rock (in Canterbury Scene style) in which ‘Stips’ keyboard plays a dominant role. The album “Present from Nancy” is their enjoyable and sparkling debut; Enjoy this new upgrade rip!
