Description
For the start of the Handel Year 2009: O praise the Lord Psalms and Anthems is the first of a series of Handel CDs which will be produced by Carus to mark the anniversary of the composer’s death in 2009. Nisi Dominus and Laudate pueri, the two vesper psalms, were composed during Handel’s educational trip to Rome in 1707. In Nisi Dominus Handel continued the tradition of the concertante polychoral motet, which was especially cultivated in Rome at that time. Due to the writing for double choir, despite its short movements, the music unfolds with a great festive majesty of sound. As in many of his works Handel employs material from previous compositions in his anthem I willmagnify thee, which was composed in London. Handel thought very highly of this work, for later he used parts of it in his great oratorio “Belshazzar”. The finely differentiated tone colors and the transparency are characteristic of the ensemble Gli Scarlattisti. These qualities make for a very special listening experience.
