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 nice keyboard piece in contrapuntal style.

Please note that in this score, all phrasing indications are editorial.

They should thus be considered as mere suggestions to the performer.

Also, we have added in this score 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.

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

Duration : 00:42
