Zadok The Priest is a Coronation Anthem for King George II and has subsequently been heard at every coronation of the British Crown, during the sovereign's anointing. The opening choral entry of Zadok The Priest is one of the most striking moments in the choral repertory and typical of Handel's grand, rousing works.
