William Babell (c. 1690 - 1723):  Concerto III in E minor (D minor) - Op. 3, No. 3
source: Concertos in 7 Parts. Op. 3 (London [1726])
scoring: D or S (Strings, Bc)

Our edition contains both the score in E minor – for a sixth flute (descant recorder in D) – and a transposed adaptation of the same concerto in D minor.

Babell conceived his composition in E minor carefully, and the violins often reach the lowest note of the instrument (G2); hence, to transpose the concerto a tone lower, I had to adapt some passages of the strings. The soprano part in D minor can be used to play the sixth flute using fingering in C.

It is worth remembering that the original recorder part was notated in G minor, since the only fingering used in England in the 18th century was that for a treble recorder.

Quirino Colombani (? - 1735):  Sonata a oboe solo in F major
source: Ms. CF-V-23: Sinfonie di varij autori. Manuscript preserved in Parma: Biblioteca Palatina, No. 18
scoring: A (Bc)

The original title of the piece is badly cropped, but it could be read as «Sonata a Oboe solo». In all likelihood, this work is a transcription of an original oboe sonata in D major transposed to F major for treble recorder. Evidence of that is the coherent presence of «B#» (that is, B natural notes notated with a sharp instead of a natural) in the score; that is, actual G# notes transposed a minor third above.

Anonymous:  Minuetto in C major (2)
source: Ms. CF-V-23: Sinfonie di varij autori. Manuscript preserved in Parma: Biblioteca Palatina, No. 28
scoring: AA (Bc)

At end of the Sonata No. 15 of this manuscript, there are two minuets that managed to escape the attention both of the early copyist who compiled the table of contents and of modern editors. In all likelihood, that happened because the two minuets follow the sonata's minuet with no gaps at all. Nevertheless, they clearly do not belong to the sonata because of the different key (C major against F major) and because at end of the fourth movement, the copyist wrote «Segue Minuetto» (a minuet follows) – singular.
