Händel: Dixit Dominus. carus music

Georg Friedrich Händel

Dixit Dominus

HWV 232, 1707


Handel’s setting of Psalm 110, "Dixit Dominus", is one of his first surviving works, composed at the age of just 22 during his three-year stay in Italy.  In this large-scale work, he already displays an assured mastery in his treatment of chorus and orchestra; the obstacles for choral singers, who need to be extremely agile, should therefore not be underestimated. The numerous fugal or imitatively interwoven sections – the intertwined sixteenth note writing of "Tu es sacerdos", the initial entries in "Dominus a dextris", and the concluding "Et in saecula" section with its many octave leaps need to be thoroughly learnt.
