Georg Friedrich Handel (1685 – 1759) wrote a large amount of purely orchestral music in his career, a tiny selection of which is included here. The overture will sound strangely familiar – it is the first (and ultimately rejected) version of what would eventually become the overture to the Fireworks Suite. There follows a movement from the Water Music, the Sarabande In D and 2 more movements from the Water Music including the famous Hornpipe. Performed by the Sinfonia Of London except the Sarabande which is performed by the English Chamber Orchestra.

In 2016 we released our 30th album (Fast – Clean – Cheap) and with it an era passed. We realised it is neither necessary nor desirable to continue to issue our work on compact discs. The process is expensive and time consuming (pressing CDs, printing booklets and tray cards, buying jiffy bags, going to the post office – it’s so 1990s) so now Band Camp exists, an avenue is presented by which we can release our work to the public directly. Our projects will be obtainable from this address:

In addition there are currently 12 books available. These are proper books in print, not fake, ersatz ‘books’ you see advertised on the internet these days as ‘e-books’. They can be purchased from lulu.com. Type ‘Andy Martin – Grange Hill’ to locate them.
