Handel Water Music HWV 348-350 & Music for the Royal Fireworks HWV 351 for Harpsichord or Organ
plus an original edition of an anonymous arrangement for flute/oboe/violin and harpsichord/basso continuo
Score with 3 parts (flute/oboe/violin; basso continuo with figures (cello/bass); basso continuo realised with figures (harpsichord/organ)
As early as 1743, while Handel was still alive, Francesco Geminiani produced an arrangement of the Water Music for keyboard instruments, thereby making it possible to perform this popular work in domestic surroundings.  Then, presumably in 1749, an unknown musician arranged the Music for the Royal Fireworks for transverse flute or violin and harpsichord.  In addition to these two contemporary versions, this edition also contains an arrangement by the editor for harpsichord or organ, based on the first edition.  Though both early sources explicitly mention a harpsichord, the arrangements can also be performed effectively note-for-note on the organ.
