Of Note

There have been several theories about why the last movement of Handel’s Suite No. 5 in E Major was called “The Harmonious Blacksmith.” The name was not given by Handel and was not recorded until the 19th century, when the movement became popular on its own. Explanations include that it was inspired by the sound of a hammer on an anvil; that Handel heard a blacksmith singing the tune; and that it was named after a blacksmith, William Lintern, who also played harpsichord and published the piece so that he could sell copies.
