Tune of the Day: Adagio by Handel

from Sonata in A minor

Even though there are no sharps or flats in the key signature, the third movement of Handel's Recorder Sonata in A minor begins in F major. After a brief visit to the key of C major, it eventually gets back to A minor, and ends on a half cadence.
