This is one of Handel's best known melodies. This version of the famous "Hail the Conquering Hero" opens with a solo violin, gradually adds voices and builds in dynamic, then the sound drops to a cello/bass duet which starts the building again. Everyone gets a section of melody making it interesting for all. (3:10)
