Suite in G Major, HWV 441 (3/7 : Courante) -- Urtext

Courante from Suite No. 8

This Courante in G Major is the third of seven movements in George Frideric Handel's Suite in G Major, HWV 441.

This Suite HWV 441 has the following movements :
  1. Allemande
  2. Allegro
  3. Courante
  4. Aria
  5. Menuett
  6. Gavotte
  7. Gigue
This Suite in G Major, HWV 441 was first published in 1733 in Suites de pièces pour le clavecin, vol. 2 (London: John Walsh, 1733).

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

Also, please note the following points about this Urtext edition :
  • Measure 6, left hand : the source has F3-A3-D4 instead of F3-A3-C4, but we changed it in order to conform with measure 78
  • Measure 8, left hand : the source has E3-B3 only instead of E3-G3-B3, but we added G3 in order to conform with measure 80
  • Measure 27, left hand : the source has a # before G3, which is probably a mistake
  • Measure 44, left hand : the source has C#4-E4 only instead of C#4-E4-G4, but we added G4 in order to conform with similar passages such as measure 6
  • Measure 46, left hand : the source has G3-B3-D4, which is probably a mistake and which we changed to B3-D4-F#4 in order to conform with measures 17 and 18
