5.0 out of 5 stars Spendid October 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
My first experience of the Dettingen Te Deum was on a Nonesuch LP by the Telemann Society, who were noted for playing very vigorously but only approximately in tune. Their Te Deum was loads of fun, but not something you could take all that seriously. Stephen Layton offers something much more up to date. His chorus sings with beautiful balances, and the orchestral parts are child's play to The Academy of Ancient Music. It was a good idea to pair the Te Deum with Zadok the Priest. Both works are Handel in his ceremonial mode, and they certainly lift the spirits. The performance of the organ concerto is lyrical and lovely. Richard Marlow plays an organ built in 2000 for Sir John Eliot Gardiner's Bach Cantata series, and it has an appropriately mellow tone. Sound engineering throughout the CD is excellent, if a little distant. I had a good time listening to this, but I can't help but keep on thinking of the Telemann Society.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handel--Beyond His "Big Three" May 29, 2010
Format:Audio CD
With the vast majority of the music-listening audience, the reputation of George Frideric Handel as one of the pre-eminent composers in Western music rests on three immortal works: his epic oratorio "Messiah"; the much-beloved Water Music collection; and his final masterpiece (and arguably the last large-scale work of the Baroque), the Music For The Royal Fireworks. In recent decades, however, other works from this great German-born English master have come out from the shadows of those three masterworks to catch the ears of music lovers with a taste for works that are not exactly heard every day of the week. This particular recording is a case in point, even more so because much of the revival of Handel's works, especially in the choral genre, has come about from period-instrument ensembles.

Take for instance the composer's Dettingen Te Deum, which he composed and premiered in 1743, just one year removed from the premiere of "Messiah." It is his second setting of this grand Latin text; but unlike the earlier Utrecht Te Deum, the Dettingen one, which was composed to commemorate a skirmish that the British had won in the opening years of the Austrian War of Secession, is extraordinarily grandiose and martial in nature, in the key of D Major, and with royal trumpets and timpani very much in evidence, along with a substantial choral component. Handel also shows a certain amount of solemnity and poignancy in quieter passages such as "Thou Sittest At The Right Hand Of God" as well. This quieter but no less profound side is front-and-center in the Organ Concerto No. 14, with Richard Marlow as the organ soloist, performing on an organ that was also used for the recordings of Bach cantatas made by Sir John Eliot Gardiner and his English Baroque Soloists.

5.0 out of 5 stars EARTHLY AND DIVINE KINGSHIP October 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Looking for some modern versions of the Dettingen Te Deum I find a very wide and welcome choice. To say the least, this is not how things were not all that long ago, but out of the current range I have picked the Swiss version from Diego Fasolis, the Naxos disc and this offering from Layton and the Academy of Ancient Music, not forgetting the choir of Trinity Cambridge. This recording dates from 2007, the other two from 1999. In point of recorded quality all surpass Simon Preston's historic 1984 account, and although I don't unsay any of my enthusiastic remarks when I reviewed that some years ago, all these three surpass it on sound-quality grounds alone, and this is maybe by a small margin the best of them.

Quite aside from the performance, there is a liner note that I like, by David Vickers. It is interesting and informative regarding the background to the composition, but it also seems to me to show some recognition of the stature of it too. To put that in my own terms, even if you think of this work as mainly ceremonial, military, hearty or anything like that you will require high-quality recording for it to sound well; and if you have high-quality recording you are likely to realise that it is far more than just ceremonial and the rest of it. The text starts as a paean of praise to the Almighty, and ends as a fervent plea for salvation. A variety of moods are covered in between, and there are several huge choral climaxes, one of which may or may not be the final `let me never be confounded', depending on the conductor's view. Back to the start - it is military with a vengeance, I like that to be uninhibited and it is just terrific here, although I still like the over-the-top account from Fasolis even more.

It's wonderful to hear a fantastic performance of a Handel choral work that isn't Messiah! This is a delightful recording.
