Zadok the Priest is written for SS-AA-T-BB chorus and orchestra, the the arrangement here is for String Orchestra. The music builds up tension in its orchestral introduction, by layering semiquavers and quavers together, and then � when the choir comes in � a sense of drama by having the choir sing in the longer notes of crotchets and minims.
The middle section "And all the people rejoic'd, and said" is an imitatory dance in 3/4 time, mainly with the choir singing chordally and a dotted rhythm in the strings.
The final section "God save the King, etc" is a return to common time (4/4), with the "God Save the King" section heard chordally, interspersed with the Amens incorporating long semiquaver runs which are taken in turn through the six voice parts (SAATBB) with the other parts singing quaver chords accompanying it. The chorus ends with a largo Baroque cadence on "Alleluia".
