Listen to Händel's magnificent Coronation Anthems, with the Amadeus Choir Salzburg and the Boys' Choir of Borromäum Salzburg in the unique ambience of St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna!

The cosmopolitan Händel was born in 1685, the same year as J. S. Bach. His music, with its great, clear lines, conveys a sense of magnificience, globality and splendor. In 1727 Händel composed the Coronation Anthems, the coronation hymns, as a commission from the British King George II for his coronation, consisting of four parts. They were performed on 11 October 1727 during the coronation ceremonies at Westminster Abbey.

The Amadeus Choir Salzburg, the Boys' Choir at the Borromäum Salzburg and the Hallein Chamber Orchestra will perform the wonderful coronation hymns together with the Capella Salisburgensis - on their period instruments.
