My all-time favorite is "L'allegro, Il Penseroso, ed Il Moderato" (hence my signature) but basically I'll just listen to anything by him! I actually got turned on to "L'Allegro" by seeing film of the adaption done by choreographer Mark Morris (he was inspired by William Blake's illustrations to the original Milton poems). I love Baroque opera and anything really early (especially Purcell and Monteverdi).

Hi HandelFan, welcome to the Pit! :)

Sorry I'm a little late to the party.

BTW, your answer to the question of your favorite is wrong, I regret to inform you. There can be only one favorite Handel work, and until you get the answer right, you'll have to relinquish your "HandelFan" status.

(FWIW, I really like his Chaconne in G Major, but that's not the correct answer either.)

For some silly reason, the first time I saw it I thought it siad "HandbellFan" .

Darn! Do I get three guesses? Does it start with an "M"... :roll: :P

Hey, Peter, I think you had just moved to Gosport and disappeared from the BBB. You're missed. There was also a Michael, I think from Kilarney. I'd like to see him back, too.

No, just one guess. You can still ask questions to help others.
:dunce: Oops...wrong thread!

Thank you for paying attention to my user ID. :D

However, since you ARE a Handel fan, what do you think of the big "M" in particular?

I like sheep too! who doesn't?! :lol: Have a feeling Pumpkin is likely to make that comment when I start playing that around Easter time.... (for newbies - Pumpkin is my almost 3-year old son - see 'Altoid and other cuties' thread in Culture Connections - and no, I'm not giving him his own login as he prefers 'kid music' and "Daddy's loud music" to classical).

The grandparental female unit liked Slim Whitman.
Think I could get Nicole to play that, in an orchestral arrangement? :wink:

Dear Shos. What a fantastic memory you must have. Yes, Gosport (a derivation of the original God's Port, nothing to do with geese :wink: ). I lost contact when the Beethoven email system stopped working (2002?), and the board underwent radical changes. Now that I am assured I have been missed, I'll try and pay more attention! :juggle: How are you, wise old friend? Is Ethan still around? Audiogirl? Good to see barfle and treebeau still offering up their own particular brand of vast knowledge :rolleyes: He he....(no offence, guys). I'll contact Michael and let him know he's also missed (but of course not as much I am)..... 8)

Ms. Piqaboo, Slim Whitman was a huge star here in the UK. In the mid-seventies, he rivalled Elvis for record sales. What were your nan's favourite Whitman tunes?

Nan's favorite tunes: I have no idea. :sad:

Regrettably, Ethan and Audiogirl have not posted in more than a year. They, too are missed. Glad to have you back. My best to Michael when you contact him.

If board activity remains at current levels, how long before the station decides to reduce or eliminate it? :badputer:
