Handel - Chandos Anthems vol 1 - The Observer



Stephen Layton is on a roll.  After his triumphant recordings of Pawel Lukaszewski’s choral works he returns to Handel and three of the Chandos Anthems, “O Praise the Lord With One Consent”, “Let God Arise” and “My Song Shall be Always”.  His inspirational direction and choice of top soloists make this a welcome addition to earlier recordings.  The choir sings with their usual purity of tone and clear diction while the Academy of Ancient Music plays with convincing vigour in the sprightly double-dotted passages.
