Standard

My favorite composer from the Baroque period, George Frideric Handel,used to live in this house (1723 until his death in 1759) on 25 Brook Street, London. It is now a museum. The music hat Handel composed in this house includes MessiahZadok the Priest and Music for the Royal Fireworks.

In London, you can find blue plaques such as this one on buildings that are culturally or historically significant.
