This year’s London Handel Festival includes a rare revival of a serenata composed to celebrate the wedding in March 1734 of Anna, Princess Royal, the eldest daughter of George II and a pupil of the composer himself, to Prince William of Orange, and which was sufficiently successful to be revived in Handel’s later seasons.

  • George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)
