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.

But above all, because of their different scoring; that is, two recorders and continuo.

Anonymous:  My Lady Carey's Dompe
source: Ms. Royal Appendix 58 (c. 1525), British Library, London
scoring: A (Harpsichord)

Here is what Willi Apel says about this piece (published in Historical Anthology of Music, vol. I, Harvard, 1946):
This interesting composition is contained in a manuscript in the British Museum which was written about 1525, the earliest preseved source of English keyboard music aside from the Robertsbridge Codex. «Dump» is believed to be a lamenting and sorrowful type of English or Irish song. Shakespeare, however mentions «doeful doumps» and «merry dumps» (Romeo and Juliet, IV 4). The present dance is particularly interesting because of the ostinato character of the accompaniment. In a way, it can be considered as a series of continuous variations on a tonic-dominant harmony as a «theme». Thus it belongs in the same category with the passacaglia or chaconne of the 17th century.

This is indeed the violinistic Sonata V from Op. 1 by Castrucci transposed a fifth above and adapted for recorder by an unknown contemporary editor. The original source for recorder is not quite correct in various places and we had to compare it with the original print for violin and find the best solutions for small and less small issues.

scoring: C or A (Bc)
By Dr. Arne, one of whose earliest efforts was the composing of music to Joseph Addison’s opera Rosamond, from whence this song is taken.
[…]
Rosamond was acted at Lincoln’s Inn Theatre on March 7th 1733, and immediately became a success doing much to make the reputation of the young musician.
[…]
It is curious to notice how snatches of the as yet unformed melody «Rule, Britannia» come into «Was ever nymph?».

This collection of songs published by Walsh in 6 volumes around 1734 is quite interesting because arranges popular English and Scotch tunes adding to them some new lyrics. As usual for this kind of collections, a transposed part for the «common flute» – that is, a treble recorder – is provided. Stripping the music of unnecessary texts, we have a precious collection of popular tunes with a good continuo part. The continuo realization is editorial.
