Handel, G. F. – Thou Art the King of Glory for Trumpet, Basso and Strings.
A brilliant movement from Handel's Te Deum HWV 283 from 1732. Handel's first work in English brought him fame in England. This aria is in Handel's signature style with long florid vocal phrases and majestic Trumpet sounds.
Ray Kirkham of the Vancouver Symphony has produced a lovely arrangement of this work with String accompaniment of almost 3 minutes in length for moderately advanced performers.
