Chandos Anthems (George Frideric Handel)
The Chandos Anthems are eleven works performed by George Frideric Handel while at Cannons in the employ of the Duke of Chandos, 1717-1719. Chrysander's G. F. Händels Werke refers to "Chandos Anthems" while using Psalmen on the title page; the Hallische Händel-Ausgabe (Bärenreiter, 1981-95) titles them Anthems for Cannons. Nevertheless many were either revisions of earlier works or were significantly revised at later dates.
