Handel Music

Linda Wertheimer talks to Nicholas McGegan, music director of the Gottingen Festival in Germany. He will conduct Gloria in Excelsis Deo, a composition for soprano and strings by George Frideric Handel, which has been rediscovered in a London library. Handel scholars in England and in this country have examined the work and believe that it is an authentic Handel piece and probably one of his earlier works.
