Unlike Handelís other organ concertos, HWV 292 is not a transcription of a work for a different solo instrument, but was conceived from the outset as part of the oratorio Athalia. Its fourth movement leads seamlessly into a Hallelujah chorus that was only later replaced by an Adagio ending for publication purposes. Thanks to the relative simplicity of the chorus, our volume makes a useful addition to the material already published for this concerto (BA 8344).
