Although Handel's opera "Serse" (Xerxes) has not been a major success, it is famous as the origin of "Handel's Largo". The "Largo" is an instrumental version of the aria Ombra Mai Fu from Serse, although the original aria was in fact marked as "Larghetto". This particular version has been arranged for piano, but many other arrangements are available, including our arrangement for Violin and Piano which includes alternative parts for other instruments to replace the main Violin part.
Handel's Largo is very familiar to many people because it is often played in church services and on various ceremonial occasions. You can see the sheet music below, or download the piano Sheet Music, MIDI file or MP3 file versions.
