Handel’s Zadok the Priest

This fine piece by George Friedrich Handel is an enormously impressive work. Since 1727, this piece has been used not only for coronations of English monarchs but for weddings and other major occasions. The composition utilizes not only strings, but a full orchestra and chorus (and sometimes an organ). The result is a sublime example of Baroque musical genius at its finest.
