John Herndon's arrangement of Alla Hornpipe, the most famous and recognizable movement from Water Music, captures the energy, style, and ebullience of Handel's original. The title Alla Hornpipe is a reference to a lively, simple, and rustic British dance which, in the hands of Handel, becomes an intricate baroque masterpiece. Characterized by florid ornamentation, energetic syncopation, and swelling contrapuntal lines, this arrangement will bring joy and flair to any concert program.

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.

*This piece can be performed on 2 marimbas, with M1 sharing an instrument with M3 and M2 sharing an instrument with M4.
