Program Notes on Prelude in G Major, HWV 442 by Handel :

This Prelude in G Major is the first of two movements in Handel's Suite No. 9 in G Major, HWV 442, published in London in 1733.

The Prélude itself was composed ca 1717-1718, in the key of F Major (please refer to Allegro in F Major, HWV 488).

It was later transposed to G Major and paired (in 1733) with the Chaconne and 62 variations, G 228, to form Handel's Prélude and Chaconne, HWV 442.

Please note that this score contains suggestions for performing the ornaments (here, trills) in accordance with the performance practice of the Baroque period.

Namely, we suggest adding cadential trills to measures 7, 15 and 25.
