Concerti grossi op. 6 by Arcangelo Corelli( )

201 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 2,476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Handel’s Concerti Grossi contain some of the finest orchestral music of the eighteenth century. The Op 6 collection brims with a wealth of variety, colour, and dance rhythms—Polish and Pastoral dances, courtly and fast ones—and Handel’s customary self-borrowings and indeed borrowings from other composers. The combination of full orchestra with a concertino solo group of two violins and cello allows both breadth and intimacy, producing concertos in the fullest sense. On this recording Kevin Mallon incorporates the later oboe parts for Concertos Nos 1, 2, 5 and 6, using them as a model for most of the other concertos. When the oboes are silent, flutes or recorders are added, in line with eighteenth-century practice."--Container

Concerti grossi, op. 3 by George Frideric Handel( Recording )

252 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 2,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Von Händels Concerti grossi op. 3 existiert keine von ihm verfasste Urschrift und sie sind wohl in dieser Form nicht selbst von Händel herausgegeben, sondern von seinem Verleger John Walsh, der 1734 eine wahre Flut Händelscher Werke herausbrachte. Für seine Edition des op. 3 hatte er eigenmächtig einzelne Instrumentalstücke aus Händels geistlichen und weltlichen Werke gesammelt und zu Concerti grossi gruppiert. Der Erfolg gab ihm recht und heiligte die Mittel, denn die Musik fand reißenden Absatz und ist wegen ihres großen Abwechslungsreichtums bis heute geschätzt

Handel composed Judas Maccabaeus, the planned victory oratorio, in July and August 1746. The libretto was the work of the Rev. Thomas Morell, who was to provide the words for three more oratorios and in later life left a fascinating account of his collaboration with the composer.
