Can You Handel This Music?

The River Thames with St. Paul's, Canaletto

Forgive the awful pun. One can imagine the music resonating over all of London to the rich and poor alike.

Here is Handel's Water Music, which was performed on barges while sailing down the Thames.

Handel -〈Water Music〉1717 / Alla Hornpipe - Suite No. 2 in D major, HWV 349 (Ton Koopman)
