URTEXT EDITION 
This “urtext” or “scholarly” (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in Germany and thus is public domain in its country of origin. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum ‘threshold of originality’ to qualify for copyright as an ‘adaptation’. It may not be public domain elsewhere, however. More information about this can be found here.

Misc. Comments

  • Grove Music's work list for Handel does not mention HWV 540 specifically, except in a comment that the song "Who to win a woman's favour" was constructed with "words added to authentic inst minuet (hwv540a, related to minuet in Almira)".
  • Tagged for harpsichord, because Grove Music's work list says that Handel's keyboard works were "all probably for harpsichord and written before 1720, unless otherwise stated".
