As of 24 July 2012, I''ve listened to all the samples available from Amazon for any CD that matches "Handel Water Music" and I find there are three that seem to cover a range of Handel Music:

- Best Of
- Greatest Hits
- Handel collection

There may be more collections available on Amazon that I have not heard, since I was specifically looking for the Baroque piece from the Water Music, but nevertheless here are my findings, that may inform your purchase decision:

All three CDs are to my ear, excellent as far as audio quality and musicianship. While there are exceptions, I find that generally is the case with both classical and country albums. Perhaps there is more attention paid to these niche markets. Yes, millions of people listen to country, but the demand doesn''t compare to Wamart''s sales of Lady Gaga cookie-cutter songs. It''s a shame, `cuz my 1st love is rock and 2nd love is roll.

In my view, "The Best of" is in fact, the best of the three Handel albums cited, offering both a variety of selections and artists, as well as a variety of instrumentation, all of which seem to strike the right balance between the technical reproduction (true to the literal composition) and musical interpretation (what I expect Handel was trying to evoke emotionally in the listener). For me, the highlight on the "Best of" is Track 7. Solomon, HWV 67: Solomon, HWV 67, Act III: Sinfonia, "Arrival of the Queen of Sheba," played with more assertiveness and playfulness on this album than on "The Handel Collection," and apparently (and surprisingly) absent from "The Greatest Hits" CD, though clearly recognizable as a "hit" to anyone with the slightest exposure to classical music.

Another favorite on "The Best Of" CD is Track 20. Water Music: Suite No. 2 in D major, HWV 349: II. Alla Hornpipe. The track appears on "The Handel Collection" as Track 15. Hornpipe (from the Water Music), which provides a strong performance, perhaps on the edge of over-modulated, and neither as bright nor engaging as on "The Best Of" CD. This easily recognizable piece also appears on "Greatest Hits" as Track 14. Water Music Suite No. 2, HWV 348-350/II. Alla Hornpipe, and that performance seems to be almost mechanical, perfectly even in delivery, with no interpretation or subtlety at all, which feels to me, lacking emotion. And I''m not enamored with the Greatest Hits identification of its tracks, which falls short of proper ID to know the source symphony for the work. Also, "The Greatest Hits" producers stuck Track 22. Hallelujah Chorus - From the "Messiah" (Voice), on the end of the Greatest Hits, and it''s, well, nothing short of annoying on an album of otherwise instrumental pieces. Guess you can press "Eject" when it hits the last track, hallelujah! Personally, I prefer Mr. Bean''s version of this number. If you like choirs, I''d recommend Judy Collin''s singing Amazing Grace backed by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, not this grotesque piece of royal Jesus mess.

Now, if you want maximum variety in instrumentation (violins, horns, harpsichord, harp, oboe), to have a wide range of audio textures in your listening environment, I recommend you go directly to "The Handel Collection," do not pass go, do not collect $200. That CD definitely delivers best in terms of instrument variety. Still, it is not my personal preference, since it feels like -- how do I describe this -- like the way you feel when you listen to a rock album by the original artists but find the recordings are remakes, not the songs you heard on the radio growing up. I doubt any classical station would every play any tracks off "The Handle Collection" Cd. They just feel like poster paint, not oil.

I have owned this recording for some time now. In fact, it was probably responsible for cultivating in me the understanding and appreciation I now have for Handel''s music. It is a brilliant way to become familiar with his style, and because Handel''s style is so easy to listen to anyway, it is also an great introduction to baroque music appreciation in general.

Handel is for me the undoubted master of music, and with this recording, Naxos has given a collection of superb performances that do great justice to this impressive body of work. The "Overture to the Music for the Royal Fireworks" featured on this album, is the best I have ever heard, particularly the first section, which I believe has no rival.

I give this album five stars out of five, by sheer virtue of the fact that it just that good!!

The best of Handel is a must buy. The music style is a mixture of Bach and Vivaldi (German and Italian).
