Handel: Water Music

Frederick Handel was a composer for King George (I forget the number - 13 or something?).  King George wanted to have a party on a boat on the river, so he commissioned a piece of music from Handel to play at the party.  Handel's orchestra played while riding on one barge, while floating down the river next to another barge with the party-goers.

Today we made a barge in the river and took turns playing music, being waves and fish while listening to Handel's "Water Music"
