Eighteenth-century manuscript collection of songs and choruses from oratorios by Handel; contains 25 numbers from Judas Maccabæus, Saul, Messiah and Samson. Black ink on 10-stave paper, the copyist, a calligraphic hand, has not been identified. There is no title. This is probably a library manuscript, written in fine calligraphy; the selections are divided into groups, each numbered continuously from 53 to 58 and listed separately at the beginning of the volume [ff.i-vi]. The same numbers appear on the backstrip, and this suggests that the volume might have been part of a wider collection, and that the numbers might refer to a catalogue. At the end of several numbers there is a note stating the duration in minutes and seconds
