George Frideric (or Frederick) Handel (1685 – 1759) was a German, later British, baroque composer who spent the bulk of his career in London, becoming well known for his operas, oratorios, anthems, and organ concertos. Handel received important training in Halle and worked as a composer in Hamburg and Italy before settling in London in 1712; he became a naturalised British subject in 1727. He was strongly influenced both by the great composers of the Italian Baroque and by the middle-German polyphonic choral tradition.

Handel’s three anthems (My song shall be alway HWV 252, O come let us sing HWV 253, O praise the Lord HWV 254) were composed in 1717 and 1718 for Cannons, a country estate near to London. They take their nickname, the “ Chandos Anthems”, from the owner of the estate, the First Duke of Chandos .

The three pieces are noteworthy for their festive character and their varied orchestral accompaniment. Handel borrows older material from his Italian period and his earlier works for the Chapel Royal in London – a standard procedure for this composer, who reused particularly successful pieces as starting points for his later works. The scoring for solo voices, chorus, oboe, strings, and continuo was tailored to the musical resources of the small country estate. Two additional recorders are needed for “O come let us sing unto the Lord”.

The anthems present the Urtext from the “Halle Handel Edition” and include uncomplicated and easy-to-play piano reductions. In addition to the original English words, the full scores and vocal scores also include a singing translation in German.

Although originally written for Accompanied Voice, I created this Interpretation of the Sonata in A Major from Chandos Anthem No. 8 (HWV 253 Mvt. 1) for Oboe & Strings (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
