Most music lovers have encountered Georg Friedrich Händel (1685 – 1759) through holiday-time renditions of the Messiah's "Hallelujah" chorus. And many of them know and love that oratorio on Christ's life, death, and resurrection, as well as a few other greatest hits like the orchestral Water Music and Royal Fireworks Music, and perhaps Judas Maccabeus or one of the other English oratorios. Yet his operas, for which he was widely known in his own time, are the province mainly of specialists in Baroque music, and the events of his life, even though they reflected some of the most important musical issues of the day, have never become as familiar as the careers of Bach or Mozart. Perhaps the single word that best describes his life and music is "cosmopolitan": he was a German composer, trained in Italy, who spent most of his life in England.

Handel self-published the first volume of his Suites for keyboard in 1720. Although this was outside his usual activities as a composer, he did so because the suites had been published the previous year in Amsterdam by Jeanne Rogers, who, given the absence of international copyright laws, paid Handel not a penny for his work. The full title of the volume was Suites de pièces pour le Clavecin and the suites are most often sets of stylized dances with the occasional addition of other movements. The Suite in E minor consists of six movements: Fuga, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, Presto, and Gigue. Marked Allegro, the opening four-voice Fuga has a hammering subject pounding through the whole movement until the final, massive Adagio cadence. The Allemande, marked Allegro moderato, is a sweet and supple movement with delicately intertwining voices. The Courante, marked Allegretto tranquillo, is an easily flowing movement in three voices that expand to four and then five voices at the cadences. The Sarabande, marked Allegretto con moto, is a quietly contemplative movement with an inward melody. The closing Gigue, in 12/8 and marked Vivace, is a hoot and a holler with a quick rush to the final cadence.
