Tune of the Day: Affettuoso by Handel

 from Violin Sonata in D major

Today we propose the opening movement from a sonata for violin and basso continuo in D major, HWV 371, composed by George Frideric Handel around 1750. Handel's manuscript bears the indication “afetuoso”, a misspelling of the Italian affettuoso meaning “affectionate” or “tender”.

Tune of the Day: The Humors of Trim

 Traditional Irish jig

The first appearance of this jig is, without a title, in George Petrie's Collection of the Ancient Music of Ireland, published between 1855 and 1882. The title “The Humors of Trim” is first found in Francis O'Neill's Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. Nowadays the tune is often referred to as “The Rolling Waves”, a name that is however shared by multiple traditional melodies.

Tune of the Day: Minuetto by Quantz

 from Flute Sonata in D major

This minuet is the fourth and final movement of Johann Joachim Quantz's Sonata in D major for flute and continuo, QV 1: Anh. 15a. As the “Anh.” (“Anhang”, German for annex) in the opus number suggests, the attribution of this sonata to Quantz is questioned by scholars.
