"...Helbich gives us the Dettingen work in a thoroughly enjoyable performance... his choir and solo quartet, with period orchestra, give a rousing rendition, with no serious problems of English diction. Such quality at the Naxos bargain price will be welcome enough, but diligent Handelians will particularly crave this release for the recorded premiere of an earlier setting of the Anglican canticle based on the Chandos Te Deum in B-flat... It is an interesting and attractive addition to our knowledge of how Handel assimilated earlier Anglican sacred writing into his evolving sacred style. Once again, the performance is thoroughly effective and in constantly fine sound. A genuine bargain, this!"
