Utrecht Te Deum a Hymn of Praise

Handel wrote the Utrecht Te Deum in early 1713, and it was performed together with his Utrecht Jubilate at the Thanksgiving service for the Peace of Utrecht in St Paul’s Cathedral, London, on 7 July. It was his first composition for a state celebration, and helped to establish his reputation as a composer in London.



Handel's Utrecht Te Deum is the opening work in City of Dunedin Choir's concert "Beauty of Baroque" on Friday 30 March, 7:30 pm in Knox Church, George Street, Dunedin
