Excuse me, Händel, but... Purcell. :awesome:

Purcell - "Strike the Viol, Touch the Lute" from Come Ye Sons of Art (Birthday Ode for Queen Mary). Tim Mead, Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien.

[Reveal] Spoiler: alternate link

    Strike the Viol, touch the Lute;
    Wake the Harp, inspire the Flute:

    Sing your Patronesse's Praise,
    Sing, in cheerful and harmonious Lays.

Their take on one of my faves:
Purcell - curtain tune from Timon of Athens, Z.632. Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien.
