Handel and His Royal Masters

Donald Macleod introduces music associated with the various monarchs who reigned during Handel's time in England, including an orchestral suite famously performed on the River Thames for King George I, the best loved of all his anthems, performed at the coronation of his son George II, and an oratorio written to celebrate the Hanoverian victory over the second Jacobite Rebellion.
