URTEXT EDITION 
This “urtext” or “scholarly” (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in Germany and thus is public domain in its country of origin. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum ‘threshold of originality’ to qualify for copyright as an ‘adaptation’. It may not be public domain elsewhere, however. More information about this can be found here.

Misc. Comments

  • The Handel Hallische Ausgabe gives 3 slightly different versions of this popular minuet (Nos 105a, 105b & 105c), of which the third is the most commonly played. The same minuet can also be found as the IVth movement of the Concerto Grosso in F major HWV 315.
  • Grove Music says that Handel's keyboard music was "all probably for harpsichord and written before 1720, unless otherwise stated". However, it does not list HWV 516 at all. (Rather vague and outdated info, since the HHA has published it in 1988...)
  • Most suitable for piano (often listed in Piano Repertoires for students), like A.M. Bach's NötenBüchlein famous minuets, and rather swell sounding on the organ.
