- The attribution to Händel described as "doubtful" over at Allmusic.com - no.4 of a set of 6 trio sonatas that, according to Burney, were discovered by Hugh Hume, earl of Marchmont, during a visit to Germany in the 1720s-30s (according to the notes to the Hyperion recording of the sonatas - which continue that following the lead of the "German scholar Hugo Leichtentritt in the 1920s, many authorities simply could not accept that they were the work of a ten- or eleven- year old") - etc.
- Grove Music, though listing this in the "Doubtful and spurious" category, says the original instrumentation was oboe, violin, and continuo. Therefore tagged for both possibilities.
