Happy Birthday, Mister Handel

George Fredric Handel 
23 February 1685 - 14 April 1759
 


Beloved wife, lover beloved, where are you?
Ah! My wrath returns!
In the altar of your dark Érebos,
with the force of my indignation,
I challenge you, oh unworthy spirits!

Cara Sposa, an aria from his opera, Rinaldo, which he regarded as one of his favorites.

I've been otherwise occupied, getting the second edition of my book ready to be published. Now that project is finished and I can get back to my blogs. :)
