Tune of the Day: Where'er You Walk

by Handel, arranged for flute and piano

Originally presented as a “musical drama after the manner of an oratorio”, George Frideric Handel's Semele is an opera in all but name. It was first presented in concert form at Covent Garden theatre, London, in 1744.

“Where'er you walk” is arguably the most popular number from Semele, and undoubtedly one of Handel's most famous arias. Originally sung in Act 2 of the opera by Jupiter, the king of the gods in ancient Roman mythology, over the last century the aria has been sung as a concert piece by many renowned artists, both male and female.

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this piece!
