[Collection of vocal and pianoforte music]

  • [S.l.] , [1791-1821]
Physical description
[44]f ; 23 x 31cm
  • Ms score
  • The cover of the manuscript book has an engraved cherub holding a scroll on which is written the first owner's name "T. Turner, 1791", followed by "G.T. Turner, 1821". The hand changes at f.33v and a folio has been removed. [14] is attributed to Hook in the manuscript but appears to be by Sanderson; Rhames of Dublin printed this [ca.1800] with the same incorrect attribution
  • Ink on 10-stave paper printed and sold by Longman & Broderip sometime between 1782-1798 (the paper made by J. Whatman). ff. 41v-43 are blank and there are sketches on f.6. F.23 has been torn and repaired
  • Texts in English, one with Scottish dialect
  • All pieces are for voice and piano unless otherwise specified. The information given includes the title and (where different) first line of vocal numbers in brackets. Square brackets include information supplied (by the cataloguer) including composers, stage works from which songs originate and dates of the first known publications (taken from the British Union catalogue): they assist in dating the manuscript, as some titles used could only come from printed versions of the works (i.e. those that mention the singer of the popular song). Thus it will be noticed that [1-28], in the first scribal hand, appeared in print (in the main) during the 1790's and [29-42], in the second hand, from the early 1800's.
