Handel's "Water Music" is a collection of orchestral movements, which premiered on 17 July 1717 in a concert for King George I. The concert was a unique performance held on the river Thames. At about 8 p.m. on the designated day, the King and several aristocratic friends traveled aboard a royal barge from Whitehall palace towards Chelsea. A second barge contained an orchestra consisting of about fifty musicians which performed Handel's music as the royal excursion proceeded. The King's pleasure with his musical accompaniment was such that he ordered the music to repeated no less than three times.

This is a free sheet music for trumpet and piano. It is in the key of C major.

The German-born George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) was a famous Baroque composer who lived much of his life in Britain. He was successful as a composer of oratorios, anthems, operas and organ concertos. Handel received his education in Germany and Italy before settling in Britain in 1712. He set out to supply the English nobility with Italian Opera, and within 15 years had successfully established three commercial opera companies. After a physical breakdown in 1737 he began to address the musical needs of the middle-class of society. After the success of "Alexander's Feast" in 1736 he chose to concentrate on English choral works. The Oratorio "Messiah" (1742) was well received, and thereafter he never performed an Italian opera again. Handel's coronation anthem "Zadok the Priest", has been performed at every British coronation since George II's accession to the throne in 1727.
