Unlike the context of most of his other organ concertos, Handel probably incorporated HWVa within the narrative of the main entertainment.

However, the conducting score of the ode shows that at some point—presumably —the end of the recitative was recomposed in order to allow a smooth transition to inserted music in A major, the key of the organ concerto.

On this recording two sections—the ad libitum and the opening of the Grave —are improvised by the organist Richard Marlow.

Its text is paraphrased from 1 Kings 1: Handel presumably relished the opportunity to write grand ceremonial music for much larger forces than were available in the theatre an eyewitness of the rehearsal claims that there were 40 singers and playersbut it seems that the musical contributions to the coronation service were far from smooth.

It is unlikely that Handel ever performed with such a large choir again.

A modern listener might disagree that such energetic musical excitement is unattractive. The stark militaristic opening gambit is like a battle drum, which hops between just two notes and swaggers with self-assurance; the antiphonal skirmish between the woodwind and brass with strings conveys a wonderful sense of momentum.


For this, and also some other passages in the score, Handel was influenced by a Latin setting of the Te Deum by Francesco Antonio Urio. Ceum surprising of all is the final movement. Mais, si tel fut bien son raisonnement, Haendel fit un mauvais calcul.
