Misc. Comments

---Note: according to RISM, at least one source/copy (see external links) gives the first movement as a single-movement Fantasy (at least, it seems so; the incipits seem to be identical.) It is odd though not unprecedented to have a 2-movement sonata with the movements in different keys, but it is true you make no claim that she intended the movements to go together (or are you so claiming? It is not quite clear.) Also according to RISM-online, her output contains at least one sonata (so intended) for cembalo (in G major- labeled "sonata 24" so likely there are or were others...), several for organ, a couple for fortepiano (again, at least) just counting sonatas, not other works). - Schissel (Though some they list are by others and mention her in some way or been arranged by her (Querverweis), e.g. a sonata for piano duet by M.J. Tours that may have been dedicated to her? - will have to look at that in a little while.)
