When George of Hanover succeeded Queen Anne in 1714 as king, Handel composed the Water Music in c. 1715-17, to serenade the royal party on the Thames. George was so impressed and taken by the music that he doubled Handel�s pension and later added a further amount when he was appointed as music master to the royal children.

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.
