Misc. Comments

  • The final movement of William Babell's unpublished Overture in A is the earliest example of a concerto movement with solo harpsichord by an English composer, and considered to predate the organ concertos of Handel. See the article by Peter Holman, "Did Handel Invent the English Keyboard Concerto" in The Musical Times. (Vol.144, No.1883. Summer, 2003, pp.13-22)
