Händel, Georg Friedrich

Alexander Balus
Manuscript scribal copy of the full score of Handel's oratorio Alexander Balus, probably in the hand of John Christopher Smith (the elder). This volume is no. 13 in a series made for (Frederick) Prince of Wales about 1745. The contents generally follow the Prout-Novello score, except that n. 38 and 39, "Triumph Hymn" and "Glad Time at Length" are omitted and the order of "Heroes may Vaunt" and "Mighty Love" have been retained in their correct original position in the score.
