The King Shall Rejoice

One of Handel’s most popular and well-known choral compositions is this one, The King Shall Rejoice.

The lengthy introduction has been condensed, and the keyboard part—which is not a continuo part—is a condensed version of the orchestration. The piano, two oboes, and bassoon can all be used to execute this version. High school voices can perform this song beautifully at festivals.
