  • CPDL #33096:        (Sibelius 5)
Editor: Jonathan Goodliffe (submitted 2014-10-07).   Score information: A4, 2 pages, 36 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: The flute part in D major has not been reproduced as the flute was a transposing instrument in the 18th Century, whereas now the flute need only follow the left hand staff of the harpsichord part. [erratum: for left hand read right hand throughout; the flute is a melody instrument, not bass.]
