    Which Handel composition is this exactly, Norman?

      Zadok the Priest

        Really??? I’m sure Handel would have been and Tony Britten was rather surprised to read that. It astounded me that anyone would write it.

  2. Tony Britten says:

    Its actually a version of my anthem for the UEFA Champions League, which in term references Zadok the Priest.

      Thank you Mr. Britten for this beautiful music! Our young musicians had a blast recording it!!! 🙂

        And very nice to hear it played so well – over the years there have been numerous ‘re-workings’ that have not been such a pleasant experience to listen to!
