Grove Music's work list for Handel states that the keyboard works were "all probably for harpsichord and written before 1720, unless otherwise stated". However, HWV 506 is not mentioned in Grove's work list, except in a comment that "As on a sunshine summer's day" was constructed with "words added to authentic inst minuet (hwv506); as ‘Monsr Denoyer’s Minuet’ (Air XLIX) in C. Johnson: The Village Opera, Feb 1729, but as ‘Handell’s Minuet’ (Air XX) in version of same work entitled The Chambermaid, Feb 1730".
