Being a new Collection of Songs Compos'd by some of the most Eminent Masters & Ingrav'd from the Originalls, with a through Bass for the Harpsichord or Bass-Violl, and for the easier playing the Trebles upon the Flute, each Song is transpos'd (where necessary) to a Key proper for that Instrument.

N.B. 'Flute' at this period in England referred to the Recorder (as opposed to the transverse or German Flute).

Composers: Mr Forcer, Mr Barrett (John Barrett), Mr Wilford, John Eccles, Jeremiah Clarke, Daniel Purcell, Raphael Courteville.
