Commentary by Left Brain vs. Right Brain. LB: "This is an arrangement of an orchestral piece by George Frideric H�ndel. Taken from his oratorio Solomon, the Arrival of the Queen of Sheba has been arranged many times. The repeated chords and numerous arpeggio figures lend themselves very well to tuned percussion." RB: "It's been said that H�ndel was � German, � Italian and � English; he was a very large man. B-Flat as it may, Georg Friedrich H�ndel was born in Germany, lived 5 years in Italy, and finally settled in England under the assumed British name George Frideric H�ndel. Despite the odd instrumentation, this arrangement is pretty straightforward. The woodwind parts are transferred to bell-like instruments (Glockenspiel, Celesta and Music Box), the string parts to mallet instruments (Xylophone, Marimba and Vibraphone), and the bass to a Steel Drum." LB: "This arrangement was completed on Leap Day 2008 in Tampa, Florida."
