Misc. Comments

Wigmore in "The Faber Pocket Guide to Haydn", p.233, notes that these were "hastily composed" (meaning in context presumably that they were not only published but also composed in 1784. Not implying a negative judgment as to quality, as he praises them, if mildly, in the same paragraph.)
