Handel, Allegro for 4 recorders

Hi, RD, I am tagging this page. I have two things I need to discuss with you before I can tag it:
1) The work page should show the original title for the full work. This excerpt comes from a work called "Ouverture", so I need to re-do the page title, but that brings up the question:
2) You list it as HWV 338. However, your source, the Hallische Händel-Ausgabe, series IV, Band 15, pp.46-48 has the correct music, but the HWV number is 337, not 338. I would need to change the HWV number on the work page to 337, but Grove Music lists this work as "337 (–338)", though in the source you are using, HWV 338 is a separate work entitled "Sinfonia" and is for 2 violins, continuo. Can you shed any light on why these numbers (or pieces) are seemingly mixed up? Thanks, Steltz 11:36, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Handel composed a three movement concerto grosso in D major sometime before 1722. He re-used the 1st movement in his 1722 opera Ottone. In 1734, Walsh published that movement paired with an organ-concerto movement as Handel's Opus 3 Number 6, almost certainly without Handel's approval. The HHA published the last two movements of the original concerto attached to an unrelated first movement. The full details can be found in Burrows and Ronish "A Catalogue of Handel's Autographs", pp. 196-98. The HHA messed up rather badly. I'm pretty sure that the HWV number should be 338 and the name of the full work as catalogued is Adagio in B minor and Allegro in D. See for example
