The Ode is not often recorded, but it's such a great work, it should be on every classical music lover's shelf. The SACD sound is spectacular.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Zadok Ever!!! Sept. 17 2014

I bought this recording just for Handel's "Coronation Anthem: Zadok the Priest." Zadok is often heard at major functions of the British Royal Family and other Royals of Europe. This Zadok Rocks! Clocking in at 4:59 it is 22 seconds faster than the Archiv Preston/English Consort recording, and a half minute shorter that most of the other recordings that are at least five and a half minutes! At this tempo, Zadok starts to take on a different character. The arpeggios that one associates with opening of Zadok seem to vanish and the repetitive downbeats in the lower strings predominate. I'm thinking Dance Music. Sample it, you'll see what I mean.
But it doesn't stop there, (VOLUME ALERT-Make sure to lower the volume on your System before the Chorus, Trumpets & Drums enter because otherwise they will blow your speakers!). When they all come in all you can say is "Wow - Now that's how Baroque Music should be played!" The tympani playing has this robust militaristic quality that deserves special mention. I don't know if Diego Fasolis and I Barocchisti are using original instruments or the latest technology; it's an Awesome Performance!
Get this recording - Play Zadok when you pull out of the driveway and head to work - It starts the day Right!

3.0 out of 5 stars No sung texts included May 28 2013

Fine sound and performances, but Arts would not spend 10c to give us texts, which even English speakers need. If that doesn't bother you, the purchase will be well rewarded.
