Tune of the Day: Grave by Handel
from Flute Sonata in E minor
Although a part of what is now known as Handel's “Halle Sonata No. 2”, the attribution of this third movement to Handel is very doubtful, and many scholars suspect it to be the work of some other composer of Handel's time. The date of composition of the work is unknown, but it was first published in 1730.
