Misc. Comments

According to Grove Music, "Arne's sets of instrumental music are similarly diverse in style. In the Eight Overtures in 8 Parts (1751), nos.3 and 5 are italianate works in the fast–slow–fast pattern, while the others are broadly cast as French overtures, starting with an introduction in dotted rhythms and a fugue. Nos.3, 7 and 8 come from Henry and Emma (1749 setting), Comus and The Judgment of Paris respectively, though it is likely that they are all theatrical in origin."
