Largo is the opening aria in the opera, Xerxes, written by George Friederic Handel. It was first performed in London in 1738. It was my husband’s grandmother’s favorite piece of music and is a very calming piece to listen to. I sometimes play it in the evening when I’m winding down at the end of a long day, to help me relax and sleep easier. I think you will enjoy it as well.
