Misc. Comments

A Song design'd to be Sung by Mr. Pack in the third act of the Play Called "Tis Well if it Takes," The words by Mr. Theobald, set to music by Mr. Babel. (c. 1720)

-- Is all the music to this play by Babell, or just this song? Were the text authors for the various numbers the same or different? Can more of this music (to the play), if any, be found and uploaded to IMSLP (if so, this song should be included in the larger assembly of incidental music, and perhaps an effort made to find the librettists, if possible) - etc. One likes to upload workpages for wholes and then upload parts into them, if I make any sense ... - Schissel
