Handel composed his oratorio Solomon in 1748 and the composition of the work occupied him a little more than a month. The Sinfonia or the Arrival of the Queen of Sheba as it is widely known, opens the third part of the oratorio and has become very popular in a variety of arrangements for all kind of groups and ensembles�. In this arrangement for string quartet the dynamics, phrasing, bowing and articulation are editorial, and I have realised some of the inner voices from the harmonic structure without altering Handel�s original.

This series of arrangements for string quartet is aimed at string quartets� that are building a repertoire of incidental popular classics and �easy listening� music for social functions of every kind. In preparation also at the time of writing is a collection of the most popular hymns taken from the English Hymnal for string quartet with optional chamber organ. From time to time I shall add further pieces thus building the availability of music that is well known to the general public. String quartets should contact me if they have any particular requests, but here I must stress that strict copyright restrictions may apply for certain commissions.
