This edition bears looking into, even though we carry three other versions of this piece. There are three parts to this publication: a scholarly article originally written for the American Harp Journal which includes 10 pages on authentic performance practice; the original Handel version, and then Bundock Moore’s edition of the piece. ADVANCED PEDAL HARP.
Paraphrased from the Foreward – the original manuscript has a simplicity about it that is not always transferred to the arrangement or the performance. This is a stylistically correct edition, and the student/performer is encouraged to do their own research on baroque music performance. A cadenza is not included in the 2nd movement, and if you’re not comfortable with writing your own cadenza, Bundock Moore suggests that you use the one written by Lucille Lawrence in her edition (Lyra Music, which we carry.)
