Organ Concerto in F major, Op 4 No 4

composer

 
Op 4 No 4 in F major was completed on 25 March 1735 and given its first performance a week later at a revival of Athalia at Covent Garden. In 1737 the concerto was performed in a version which concluded with the ‘Alleluia’ chorus heard here. Handel subsequently incorporated this chorus into The Triumph of Time and Truth.

L’op.4 no4 en fa majeur fut achevé le 25 mars 1735 et donné pour la première fois une semaine plus tard, lors d’une reprise d’Athalia à Covent Garden. En 1737, ce même concerto fut interprété dans une version s’achevant sur le chœur d’«Alleluia» entendu sur ce disque – chœur que Hændel incorpora par la suite à The Triumph of Time and Truth.
