Water Music, Ste II & III in D/G: 2. Alla Hornpipe

Washington, D.C.
April 2009

There are a lot of really lovely water features throughout the Mall, many of which commemorate different people or services. Just moments after taking this photo, we were ambling along Constitution Ave. back toward the hotel, and while waiting to cross at a traffic light, heard the unmistakable sound of Handel's Water Music. Played on the steel drum. A steel drum. It was one of those gloriously unexpected moments that happen in life when you're really lucky.

Go listen to some good music: "Water Music, Suites II & III in D/G: 2. Alla Hornpipe" from the album Handel: Water Music by The English Concert & Trevor Pinnock.
