Misc. Comments

See Wöchentliche Nachrichten und Anmerkungen, die Musik betreffend, Volume 3 (page 118) for a contemporary review of what may have been the first publication or first performance? (or early?) (Erm... not sure which of either. Not even absolutely sure it's of Benda's ode rather than another for the same occasion. Almost sure, though.) in an October 1768 issue of the magazine. - Schissel
