Is there another composer who can match Handel’s genius for writing choruses? He is quite simply the master of chorus, and on this compilation, taken from The Sixteen’s award-winning Handel back-catalogue, there is much rejoicing. Revel in some of Handel’s finest writing, from the universally loved Hallelujah chorus to the exuberance of I will sing unto the Lord from Israel in Egypt and the longest of his choruses – the magnificent The Lord our enemy has slain from the first version of Esther.
