    HANDEL IN THE STRAND (Concert Band) - Grainger, Percy

    Written to depict a jolly old Handel careening down the Strand (the theatre district of London), this work is scored to best depict the light and percussive qualities of the piano along with the lyrical character of chamber music. The "room music" quality of the original shines through in this skillful transcription. (3:35)

    Handel in Rock Wind Band Set (Score & Parts)

    Handel's Tochter Zion is one of the most beautiful hymns ever composed. Luc Gistel has arranged this musical gem in a variety of styles using many of the outstanding rhythmic elements of modern music. The piece opens with the original theme in all its natural pure sound, transforming into music in a pop style. The middle section is romantic with meandering peaceful and sensitive lines. This is followed by a reappearance of the pop melody. The piece comes to a close with the return of the initial theme. 05:40

    HEAVIER WATER (Programme Concert Band) - Handel, George Frideric - Wiffin, Rob

    In the mid-1970's, the Band of the Coldstream Guards made it into the pop charts with a rock version of Handel's Water Music entitles Heavy Water. The concept has been reworked and the result is this funk version, Heavier Water. Although the piece features the bass guitar, it works perfectly well without it. Duration: 4:00

    March from Scipio Wind Band Set (Score & Parts)

    Handel?s opera Scipio was written in 1725 and performed the following year in the King?s Theatre, London. Following Handel?s death his operas fell into obscurity until the 1960?s when they experienced a major revival. This famous march from Scipio has however remained popular since its first performance and has been the Regimental Slow March of the British Grenadier Guards since the 18th century. The march is fairly simple and gives young bands the opportunity to play a well-known baroque melody which should be well within their technical ability. 02:15

    Tochter Zion Wind Band Set (Score & Parts)

    Tochter Zion, also known as See the Conquering Hero Comes, is the most famous chorus from the oratorio Judas Maccabaeus (1746) by the composer George Frideric Handel (1685-1759). The heroic epic based on the Biblical story about commander-in-chief Judas Maccabaeus, was used by Handel to celebrate the English victory over the rebellious Scottish. The first performance of this patriotic work - written in the pleasing, rich baroque style that Handel's music is known for - was conducted by himself; the success was huge. The chorus See the Conquering Hero Comes was added later, in 1748, drawn from another oratorio (Joshua). 0:02:30
