Misc. Notes "Chrysander issued two scores of Rinaldo in the Händel-Gesellschaft edition, the second (1894), containing both the 1711 and 1731 versions, being a replacement of the first (1874) which contained only the 1711 version. Virtually all the music of 1711 and 1731 is included in the revised volume, though with deficiencies of detail (especially in the stage directions). The additional arias of the revivals in the period 1712–17, of which Chrysander was unaware, are not shown" (Source: The New Grove Dictionary of Opera).
