John Herndon’s arrangement of Alla Hornpipe, the most famous and recognizable movement from Water Music, captures the energy, style, and ebullience of Handel’s original. The title Alla Hornpipe is a reference to a lively, simple, and rustic British dance which, in the hands of Handel, becomes an intricate baroque masterpiece. Characterized by florid ornamentation, energetic syncopation, and swelling contrapuntal lines, this arrangement will bring joy and flair to any concert program.
