Queen Caroline Te Deum

The Te Deum in D major, "Queen Caroline" is a canticle Te Deum in D major composed by George Frideric Handel in 1714. When Queen Anne died in 1714, her second cousin the Elector of Hanover became King of Great Britain as George I, his daughter-in-law Caroline of Ansbach thus became Princess of Wales. Caroline left Hanover and traveled to Britain, making the only sea voyage she took in her life, arrived at Margate in September 1714, her safe arrival was celebrated by the composition of this Te Deum by Handel, resident in London since 1712 and had composed a number of pieces for royal occasions. The Te Deum was performed in the Chapel Royal of St. James's Palace in that same month, on the 26th, again on 17 October. Since Caroline became Queen as consort of George II, the Te Deum composed to give thanks for her safe arrival in Britain became known as the "Queen Caroline" Te Deum. George I attended the performance of the Te Deum and subsequently doubled Handel's "pension", or salary, he had been granted by Queen Anne of two hundred pounds a year for life to four hundred.

The work calls for six solo vocalists and instrumental ensemble including trumpet. We praise O Lord, We acknowledge thee to be the Lord. All the earth doth The Father everlasting. To thee the angels cry aloud, The heavens and all the powers therein. To thee Cherubin and Seraphim continually cry: Holy, holy! Lord God of Sabaoth and earth are full of the majesty of thy glory; the glorious company of the Apostles praise thee, The goodly fellowship of the Prophets praise thee, The holy church throughout all the world Doth acknowledge thee, The Father of an infinite majesty, Thine honourable and only son, Also the Holy Ghost the Comforter. Thou art the King of Glory, O Christ, Thou art the Everlasting Son of the Father; when thou tookest upon thee to deliver man, Thou didst not shun the Virgin's womb. When thou had'st overcome the sharpness of death, Thou did'st open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers. Thou sittest at the right hand of God In the glory of the Father. We believe. We therefore pray thee help our servants.

Make them to be number'd with thy Saints in glory everlasting O Lord, save thy people and bless thy heritage, Govern them and lift them up forever. Day by day we magnify thee, And we worship thy name for world without end. Vouchsafe, O Lord, to keep us this day without sin, O Lord, have mercy upon us, O Lord, let thy mercy lighten upon us As our trust is in thee. O Lord, in thee have I trusted, Let. Handel, a recent emigrant to Britain from Germany, studied the works of Henry Purcell in learning how to set English words to music; the section beginning "Vouchsafe, O Lord", shows a particular influence of Purcell, but the piece includes the operatic style Handel used in the theatre, for instance in the alto aria with recorder, "When thou tookest upon thee."

New Jersey Route 68

Route 68 is a state highway located in Burlington County in the U. S. state of New Jersey, serving as the main connector between the New Jersey Turnpike and the Fort Dix entity of Joint Base McGuire–Dix–Lakehurst. It runs from County Route 616 inside Fort Dix to U. S. Route 206 in Mansfield Township, 0.34 mi south of the New Jersey Turnpike. The route passes through Wrightstown and Springfield Township as a two-lane undivided road, crossing CR 537, it continues through Mansfield Township as a four-lane divided highway, intersecting with CR 543. Outside of JB MDL, Route 68 passes through agricultural and residential areas; the route was designated as Route S39 in 1941, a spur of Route 39, to provide improved access to Fort Dix during World War II. In 1953, Route S39 became Route 68 and it was legislated to extend south of Fort Dix to the Four Mile Circle with Route 70 and Route 72. A freeway for Route 68 was proposed to run between a planned Route 38 freeway and the Four Mile Circle in 1960. Route 68 begins at General Circle with CR 616 on the grounds of the Fort Dix entity of JB MDL in New Hanover Township, heading to the north as a four-lane divided highway called Fort Dix Road.

After passing through the Main Gate to Fort Dix and heading east of the Visitor Center for Fort Dix, the road continues through public areas of the military installation and crosses into Wrightstown, where it narrows into a two-lane undivided road before heading into Springfield Township. The route exits JB MDL at its intersection with CR 670 and upon leaving the fort, it heads through a mix of farmland and woodland. Route 68 crosses CR 537 before continuing north into agricultural areas with some homes; the road enters Mansfield Township where it widens into a four-lane divided highway as it intersects a road that provides access to parallel CR 545 to the east, which heads south to serve as an access road to McGuire Air Force Base. From here, the route turns northwest and crosses CR 543 before heading through a mix of farm fields and suburban residential neighborhoods. Past the intersection with White Pine Road, Route 68 passes in between two large auto auction lots; the route terminates at an intersection with US 206 located a short distance south of that route's interchange with the New Jersey Turnpike.

Route 68 serves as the main access route between the New Jersey Turnpike. As part of improving road access to the Fort Dix Military Reservation at the onset of World War II, a Works Progress Administration project improved the paved road connecting the fort to Bordentown. In 1941, this road was legislated as Route S39, a state highway spur of Route 39, to run from the fort to Mansfield Square. Construction on the access road was completed in 1943 at a cost of over $2 million. Route S39 became Route 68 in the 1953 New Jersey state highway renumbering; the same year, an extension of Route 68 was legislated to run south from Fort Dix to the intersection with Route 70 and Route 72 at the Four Mile Circle. In 1961, a freeway was proposed along the Route 68 corridor, running from a planned Route 38 freeway near Fort Dix south to Route 70 and Route 72; the entire route is in Burlington County. U. S.
