About

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 of tracks, taken from The Sixteen’s award-winning Handel back-catalogue, there is much rejoicing.

Revel in the 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.

Sit back, turn up the volume and marvel at his brilliance!

‘Christophers’ chorus is second to none’ –  Gramophone (Saul)

‘Taut, vibrant, and beautifully sprung … bright and dazzling’ –  BBC Music Magazine (Jephtha)
