Gigue for a Musical Clock, HWV 599

Gigue in C Major - Giga

This Gigue in C Major, HWV 599 is part of George Frideric Handel's 18 Tunes for Clay's Musical Clock, Set II, HWV 598-604.

It was composed during the Baroque period.

This gigue has a simple A-B musical form :
  • Measures 1-6 : Phrase A starting in the main key of C Major and modulating to the dominant key of G Major
  • Measures 7-12 : Phrase B, beginning in G Major and modulating back to the main key of C Major
We suggest repeating each of these phrases.

This score is a transcription for guitar of Handel's Gigue HWV 599.

It is appropriate for Grade 4 guitar players.

Please note that this sheet music includes suggestions for performing the ornaments (here, shakes, the English name for trills, and a mordent at the end) in accordance with the performance practice of the Baroque period.

Namely, trills begin ON the beat, on the upper auxiliary note.

More or less repercussions may be added depending on the guitarist's taste and ability.

Duration : 01:36
