Handel's Church: St. George's at Hannover Square, London

Back in London, we are again popping into churches. St. George's at Hannover Square in Mayfair has been under renovation for almost a year, with doors locked and covered with scaffolding. What a delight to pass by and discover that it was again open. We missed the noon concert, but that just means an excuse to return.

You can see a beautiful watercolor painting of the church in the My Name is Handel: The Story of Water Music CD by Maestro Classics, Number 8 in the Stories in Music series. No. 9, The Story of a Soldier (Stravinsky's L'Histoire du Soldat) was due on Dec. 6. Still has not arrived at the office but its arrival will be the best Christmas gift ever!
