Is there another composer who can match Handel's genius for writing choruses? He is quite simply the master of chorus and on this compilation of tracks, taken from The Sixteen's award-winning Handel back-catalogue, there is much rejoicing. Revel in the some of Handel's finest writing from the universally loved Hallelujah chorus to the exuberance of I will sing unto the Lord from Israel in Egypt and the longest of his choruses - the magnificent The Lord our enemy has slain from the first version of Esther. Sit back, turn up the volume and marvel at his brilliance! Whether performing a simple medieval hymn or expressing the complex musical and emotional language of a contemporary choral composition, The Sixteen does so with qualities common to all great ensembles. Tonal warmth, rhythmic precision and immaculate intonation are clearly essential to the mix. But it is the courage and intensity with which The Sixteen makes music that speak above all to so many people.
