This opening movement of Handel's Water Music Suite is suitable for formal concert as well as for occasional music for weddings and receptions. I hope you enjoy it. Please visit my website at http://members.sibeliusmusic.com/jjacklich/ to view other movements of the Water Music Suite as well as numerous other arrangements for string quartet/string orchestra. A note on this movement: I would normally have used double dots on the trilled notes in the slow introduction, but for proper playback (the trill ending before the dot), I had to use a quarter tied (or in this case slurred–again for playback purposes) to a dotted eighth.
