About

Apollo's Fire, under founder-director Jeannette Sorrell, showcases its chorus in a selection of works by Handel.

The centrepiece of the album is the grand Dixit Dominus, written during the composer's early days in Rome. In a gesture to Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee year, Sorrell has chosen two works written for the monarch's forbearers - the Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne which celebrated that sovereign's birthday in 1713, and Zadok the Priest, composed for the coronation of King George II in 1727.

As a bonus, Sorrell includes "The Lord Shall Reign" from the epic Israel in Egypt.
