A really nice set of points on different aspects of Handel's 'And the Glory of the Lord'. Maybe develop these notes into flip cards to help you remember some aspects of each category of analysis.

Wow Hayley, these notes are very thorough. But unfortunately I feel that most of the work is incorrect.
