George Frideric Handel was a German composer from the Baroque era. He spent a large part of his life in London and was buried in Westminster Abbey. His best-known works are Music for the Royal Fireworks, Messiah and the British coronation anthem Zadok the Priest.
Craig recommends… If you’re a big fan of Handel then you might like to walk around his 18th-century townhouse in Mayfair. Read my review of the Handel House. You can go and visit his tomb inside Westminster Abbey as well.
