Talk:12 Concerti Grossi, Op.6 (Handel, George Frideric)


I noticed that a note similar to the one at the top of the page here was posted in the Op.3 set, marking the page for splitting because, apparently, 'the grouping as "Op.6" was done after Handel's death'. That's simply not true. Op.6 was published (by Walsh, I think) as 'Twelve Grand Concertos in Seven Parts' in 1740 - 19 years before Handel's death in 1759. I really don't get the point of that note. Since the Op.6 grouping may actually have had Handel's approval, should it not be retained? --Irishmaestro 11:17, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
