Flute Suite in G - Water Music [1717]

The source is the edition of Deutsche Händelgesellschaft, edited by Friedrich Chrysander, Dresden, 1886. Volume “XLVII Instrumentalmusik für großes Orchester” is online available at digital collection, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, München. The “Flute Suite in G” (15-19) from the Eulenburg edition No. 1308, editor Fiske, London, 1973 has also been considered. In fact the edition is based on the sequence of numbers of the Eulenburg edition. The 6 numbers are quietly scored. "Almost certainly they were the 'very fine Consort of Musick' performed while the King had supper at Chelsea" (Fiske).
