This melody is came from the Chorus “See, Conquering Hero Comes,” from Handel’s oratorio “Judas Maccabaeus” written in 1745-1746, which is one of the most popular oratorio besides his “Messiah,” although I have not have any chance of playing.
I have the impression that this piece is often played at award ceremonies in Japan, but I wonder if it is still the case even now.
key of G Major
Handel – Chorus from Judas Maccabaeus 【Suzuki Book 2】is in the key of G Major.
Practice G Major scale and arpeggio before you practice this piece.
Maestoso means majestically, in a dignified manner.
With this key word, how would you play this piece?
Let’s practice together !
