My Name is Handel: The Story of Water Music CD

  • About My Name is Handel

    When Handel, the brilliant young German composer living in London, needed to get back into the king's good graces, he had a brilliant idea... he composed a suite of dances, hired a boat and 50 musicians, and headed down the River Thames to surprise King George I! The music became known as Water Music, one of Handel's best-loved compositions. In this recording, The London Philharmonic performs from Handel's Water MusicMessiah, and Rinaldo throughout the story.

    The included 24-page activity book contains the history of the harpsichord and organ, words to a sing-along song, information about Handel's life, puzzles, and more! After purchasing the CD/MP3 download free sheet music for "My Name is Handel", an accompanying homeschool curriculum guide with lessons in history, science, geography, language arts, art, music, and math, and print out a George Frideric Handel crossword puzzle and coloring page.
