Chambers Duets For Soprano, Alto And Basso Continuo is a collection of six chamber duets for Soprano and Alto, composed by Georg Friedrich Händel and written in 1710–12 in Hanover and 1740–45 in London. The duets are musically demanding and structured contrapuntally; the earlier works are stricter, more scholarly and more elaborate in terms of counterpoint but masterly in their craftsmanship. The later ones are composed somewhat freer, but more compact.

Händel’s chamber duets are often perceived as the best of the Baroque genre.
