Dixit Dominus is not only Handel's first important church work, but it also exceeds the scope and design of both of his other Latin psalm settings. Although the exact time and occasion for the first performance is not clear, today the universality of this work make it ideal for use in festive worship services or in concerts. With Dixit Dominus Handel's complete Latin psalm settings are now available from Carus-Verlag in critical editions.
