URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. 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'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.

Misc. Notes From the uploader's library. No dates were found for Alan Lumsden (his 1962 Preface removed) but he is mentioned in various early music renderings playing the serpentine, medieval sackbut, tenor cornett, etc... from the 60s to the 80s... This edition is based on the autograph in the library of the Royal College of Music (Ms. N°595). In it the "Original markings of phrasing and dynamics have been sparingly supplemented to secure uniformity in the ensemble, while the sparse fingering indications are all original."

Misc. Comments

Composed in July, 1814, for the violinist Johann Tost, who was planning a visit to England and who suggested including a set of variations on Handel's Harmonious Blacksmith to ensure the work's success over there.
