Familiar favorites such as the overtures to Messiah, Acis and Galatea, Alexander’s Feast, Julius Caesar and the so-called Water Musick, plus fresh discoveries for keyboard players—all demonstrating Handel’s exciting theatrical sense, his technical virtuosity in composition and his dazzling mastery of musical forms. Reprinted from an extremely rare edition originally printed, probably in the 1750’s, by Handel’s London publisher, John Walsh. The edition preserves the original keyboard notation, amazingly precise in its elegant execution.
