Music to relax after campaigning: We will rejoice in Thy salvation

This music was composed by Handel to commemorate another type of campaigning.

An interesting piece of historical trivia is that the British victory at Dettingen after which Handel wrote this piece, sometimes known as the Dettingen anthem for that reason, was the last battle in which a British King (George II) commanded his army in person.
