That one came highly recommended by Sixty Grit and MamaM -- two of the straightest shooters at Lem's.
Here's the thing: Handel is gorgeous but above all -- baroque. I crave simplicity. Musically, I actually liked three-man power trios better than The Beach Boys and The Beatles. Maybe that's why I like small molecule chemistry better that molecular biology. Simplicity. Less is more.
Consider the following video that I found, researching a post a few nights ago:
What daunting challenges that musician faces! Four keyboards and more foot pedals than a centipede could master -- and yet somehow he does. Why was that instrument perfected for a soloist? Why didn't organists have footmen, much like a locomotive engineer had a fireman? Because they could?
I suppose that next you'll tell me that the pipe organ soloist evolved specifically to play baroque music.
Merry Christmas, All!
