Happy birthday, George

Baroque composer George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) enjoyed a long and successful career, during which he produced no fewer than forty-two operas, twenty-nine oratorios, and sixteen organ concerti, along with numerous other compositions. When he died in London at the age of seventy-four, more than three thousand mourners attended his funeral, and his remains were interred in Westminster Abbey.

Handel composed this Bell Sinfonia in 1738 as part of his opera Saul.

    As a lover of Handel’s compositions, I need to get that collection while my ears still work!
