Program Notes on Sonata for a Musical Clock, HWV 598 by Handel :

This Sonata in C Major, HWV 598 is part of George Frideric Handel's 18 Tunes for Clay's Musical Clock, Set II, HWV 598-604.

It is a one-movement sonata, also know as Prelude.

Please note that the last note of measure 15 is G4.

Some editions of this Sonata show A4 as the last note of measure 15, but the Aylesford manuscripts clearly show G4.

Also, in measure 16, Handel added an ornament called a shake, which is the English name for a trill.

The present sheet music edition contains an example for performing this ornament in accordance with the performance practice of the Baroque period.

This score is a transcription of Handel's Sonata HWV 598 for guitar.

It is appropriate for Grade 3 guitar students.
