Georg Friedrich Händel: Te Deum for the Victory at the Battle of Dettingen, HWV 283
Te Deum for the Victory at the Battle of Dettingen, HWV 283
It is Handel’s last and most successful setting of the “Te Deum” and reveals a deep understanding of the English church music tradition.
The sound impact of this broadly conceived work is governed by the choirs in an almost theatrical exegesis of the text. Particularly striking are several borrowings from the “Messiah” which Handel had just completed.
This edition, edited by Baroque specialist Amanda Babington, is based on the Urtext from the “Halle Handel Edition”.
• First Urtext edition
