Description

The “Dettinger Te Deum” was written to celebrate England’s victory over the French at the Battle of Dettingen.

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”.
