Ms. Pocius performs the spirited Hornpipe from G. F. Handel’s Water Music composed in 1716 and premiered for his royal friends by King George I  of England on July 17, 1717.   This is taken from Ms. Pocius’ “Music for Christmas Eve” Album.   We are pleased to present this for your listening enjoyment.
