When Handel, the brilliant young German composer living in London, needed to get back into the king's good graces, he had a brilliant idea. He composed a suite of dances, hired a boat and 50 musicians, and headed down the River Thames to surprise King George I. The music became known asWater Music, one of Handel's best-loved compositions. My Name is Handel: The Story of Water Music includes a 24-page activity book that contains the history of the harpsichord and organ, words to a sing-along song, information about Handel's life, puzzles, and more!
After trying Maestro Classics with this CD, I will definitely be buying more! We used it as a homeschool history lesson. The CD played perfectly in our computer, and the story was infused with the song. It was captivating! There are quite a few different varieties of Maestro Classics on Educents and I've got all of them on my wishlist now.
