Passepied in C Major, HWV 559


This Passepied in C Major, HWV 559 by George Frideric Handel was probably composed around 1721 or 1722.

It thus belongs to the Baroque period

This Passepied is a lively work in contrapuntal style.

It was originally composed for the keyboard.

Please note that this score contains suggestions for performing the ornaments (here, trills) in accordance with the performance practice of the Baroque period.

In particular, trills are played ON the beat, beginning on the upper auxiliary note.

More repercussions can be added depending on the player's ability.

Also, we suggest adding a cadential trill in measure 13, as was customarily done in Handel's time.

This score is a transcription for guitar.

It is appropriate for Grade 2 guitar players.

Duration : 00:53
