    Default What's your favorite part of Handel's Chandos Anthems?

    Do any of you have a favorite part of Handel's Chandos Anthems?

    I'm listening through for the first time and two parts that are exceptionally wonderful are:

    One thing have I desired of the Lord and Let God arise

    How about you all? I'm sure I will find a ton of new favorites as this is only my first time through.

    "The Lord is my Light and Salvation" and "One Thing I have Desired of the Lord" both from Anthem #10.

    Also these from Handel's Chapel Royal, "My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord" (bass, alto, chorus) and "As pants the hart for cooling streams."

    "Thou art gone up" now that I'm listening again is also really beautiful!

    My favorite part is O Worship the Lord in the Beauty of Holiness, a lovely duet.

    It's such a wonderful work, glad to see a few others are enjoying it! I feel that it's one work by Handel that is really underrated.

    "Let Thy Hand be Strengthened", HWV 259

    This has always been my favorite of Handel's anthems. I remember hearing it as a very young child at my grandmother's house and later not being able to figure out what it was (probably no older than 5 the first time I heard it). It was years later when I finally discovered it and realized why I liked it so much.
    A way a lone a last a loved a long the riverrun, past Eve and Adam's, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle and Environs.

    Forgot to add this one,
    The Lord is My Strength and My Shield. (Anthem 10)

    Really, Anthem 10 is my favorite of them all. That said, here is a curious package of Anthem 10 with Israel in Egypt:
