HANDEL: DETTINGEN TE DEUM
George Frideric Handel, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy
Dominique Labelle (soprano), Thomas Cooley (tenor), Colin Ainsworth (tenor), William Berger (bass) and NDR Choir & FestspielOrchester Göttingen
Mendelssohn’s arrangement of this work by Handel added flute, clarinet and horn parts without altering the structure of the composition. It could be said that he added the light, full sound colours of the early romantic period.
