Gentlemans musical companion title page



Hodsoll was a London publisher of the Viennese Classical period, operating from ca.1790 to ca.1830.

The firm was quite productive, issuing over 370 works. Typical items were arrangements such as Pleyel's celebrated symphony : adapted for the piano forte, with accompaniments for a flute, violin & violoncello (ad libitum) / by S. F. Rimbault, and lavishly decribed theatrical songs such as The bird catcher, or Catch as catch can : a comic pastoral burletta as performed with the utmost applause at Sadlers Wells; op. 5, composed by V. De Cleve.
