Paper ; early 18th cent. Folio. See also below, under Operas.

Odes, with symphonies and accompaniments for trumpets, strings,
etc., in score. Transcribed by Dr. William Croft, with the exception of
the last. Nos. 2, 3 (?), 4 and 5 are by Dr. John Blow.



1. " Ode for the Duke of Gloster's birth-
day .. . July 24th, 1695." With
accompaniments for oboes, etc.
" Henry Purcell." Begins " Who
can from joy refrain." ff. 15-28.

2. "Welcom, welcome, every guest":
styled in the index " opera," but in
Add. 31457, f. 1 (above, p. 212), " Ode
for St. Cecilia's day." Among the
instruments for which it is written
are flutes, f. 47.

3. "The nymphs of y'= wells"; with
accompaniments apparently for
violins only. Apparently a Birthday
Ode for King Charles II, unless it is
a continuation of no. 2, which is
hardly probable ; it is, however, not
mentioned in the index, f. 54b.

4. " Bring, sheaperds, bring y" kids " :
a Marriage Ode, ending with the
chorus " Sing, yee muses, and reuere,"
which is not given in Ampliion An-



glicus. The present version differs
in many respects from the one given
there, f. 62.

5. "Hail, y" Infant year": described
in the index as " A Bearthday Song,"
but really for the New Year. f. 71.

6. "Barbadoes Song," beg. "No more,
great Rulers of y^ sky"; written on
the occasion of a great hurricane
in the island (before the well-known
one in 1780). It has a prelude for
trumpets, oboes, strings, kettle-drum
and theorbo. According to the
index (which appears to be in the
same hand) it was composed by J. K.
[? James Kent, who owned the
volume before 1737] or J. R. This
is probably a mistake for J. C, sc.
Jeremiah Clarke, who is known to
have written a Barbadoes song. For
the writing compare Add. 31449 and
Add. 30934, f. 3. f. 82b.
