  • Texts by John Hawkins.
  • Includes a licence and protection for the copyright of Stanley's music printing and publishing issued by George II in 1742 -- p. [1]
  • Figured bass unrealized.
  • The "cantatas ... illustrate the part played by Stanley in the transition from the Handelian Baroque to the galant style associated in England with J.C. Bach ... the two sets of solo cantatas opp.3 and 8. The first shows a command of da capo technique rare among Stanley's English contemporaries; each cantata includes at least one example of the form. In the later set there are none at all, most of the arias being in binary form with the two vocal sections often separated by short instrumental symphonies.
