Orchestra and chorus parts for theater music. [ca. 1781-1792]

Manuscript orchestra and chorus parts, either single parts or incomplete sets, most for plays performed in London, circa 1781-1792. Parts are written in unidentified hands, and some have corrections or revisions. Plays include Henry Fielding, The Mock Doctor (viola) and The Virgin Unmasked (violin I, violin II, and viola); T.A. Lloyd, The Romp (voice and viola); John O'Keefe, The Agreeable Surprise (flute, violin II, viola, and bass) and The Poor Soldier, music by William Shield (bass), with excerpts from bass and violoncello parts for Thomas Betterton's Barnaby Brittle and George Colman's Tit for Tat; and John Dryden, King Arthur, music by Henry Purcell (bass). Two chorus parts, for tenor and bass, consist of excerpts from Acis and Galatea and other works of Handel, and excerpts from works of unidentified composers.
