Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve, a date that can see celebrations and festivities round the globe. These festivities name for most sensible shelf track, and you do not get a lot more most sensible shelf than this. King George II commissioned Handel to jot down this in birthday celebration of the finish of the conflict of Austrian Succession in 1748. I believe that it is beautiful humorous that the Duke of Montague (who arranged the fireworks) instructed Handel that the King was hoping that there can be “no fiddles” – and so Handel scored the piece best for brass. Handel later re-scored the piece for complete orchestra.
The practice session in Vauxhall Gardens brought about a three hour visitors jam as carriages attempted to go London Bridge to get to the match.
May your New Year be joyous.
