Handel : Zadok The Priest Coronation Anthem (Arranged for Brass quintet)

Product Code : Handel_04
This is an English anthem that was composed for the coronation of King George II in 1727. It has since been sung during the anointing of the sovereign at the coronation of every British monarch since its composition and has become recognised as a British patriotic anthem. At the coronation itself on 11 October 1727, the choir of Westminster Abbey sang this Anthem in the wrong part of the service; they had earlier entirely forgotten to sing one anthem and another ended "in confusion".
The anthem is written for SS-AA-T-BB chorus and orchestra (two oboes, two bassoons, three trumpets, timpani, strings with three violin parts rather than the usual two, and continuo).
There are brass arrangements available of this but they also require organ. We have provided a standalone arrangement which we consider is easily playable by the ensemble on its own
Technically we would class this as fairly easy but very enjoyable as is typical with most of Handel’s compositions.

In most cases, this is the arrangment being played back using the Sibelius video export facility, but in some cases this is an actual performance by groups commissioned by Undiscovered Brass to actually perform the arrangment.
