Ten Pieces - George Frideric Handel
If you are familiar with the BBC Ten Pieces, you will enjoy this KS2 Music quiz about the life and works of the British/German composer, George Frideric Handel.
Handel (though born in Germany) is hailed as one of Britain's greatest composers of ceremonial and other music. He moved to England in his twenties and spent the rest of his life there, becoming famous for his oratorios, operas and organ concertos. One of his works, Zadok the Priest, which was written for King George II's coronation, has been performed at the coronation of every British monarch since. Handel died in 1759 and he was buried in Westminster Abbey with full state honours.
