BBC Proms 2012: Handel

What’s better than watching an orchestra and its conductor — and all of those instruments! — up close? From the BBC Proms 2012:  

Hervé Niquet leads Le Concert Spirituel in the Prélude from Handel’s Water Music Suite No 2 in D Major… with eighty players, including no less than 18 oboes, all playing specially made instruments that reproduce those used in Georgian England.

One more with recorders and drums: Water Music Suite No 3 in G Major.
