A Little Baroque Music on a Super Sunday

The greatest Baroque composer was Johann Sebastian Bach. Bach could arguably be called the greatest composer of all time for his development of the basic fundamentals of music. 

Probably the next most recognized Baroque era composer was George F Handel. His famous "Water Music" consisted of 3 suites. The second suite is the most recognizeable with its "alla hornpipe" movement. On my Sunday classical music posts I like to play soothing, pleasant music. This piece surely has those qualities.

Listen for the famous theme, I am sure you will recognize, at the 2:00 minute mark.
