The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba by Handel (from Solomon) is possibly one of my most favourite instrumental pieces. It does something to me that even Pachelbel can’t touch. I LOVE Canon in D, but it’s more soothing. This piece is much more. . uplifting. And it seems a bit more fun to play.
I think I’m going to have to take up the violin when I get home. Or the viola. I MISS playing a string instrument. BADLY.
*sigh* even the horns are lovely in this.
