Misc. Comments

Introductory note from later Randall edition:

Some Time before Mr. Oswald's Death, He had fitted for the Press a correct Edition of his Works, as well as those that were Known and Acknowledged to be His, as those that were Really Such, but had formerly been published under the Names of others, for Reasons not difficult to Guess. There are many excellent Composers whose Circumstances will not permit them to please themselves, by addressing their Compositions to the Heart, instead of to the Ear only. His fine Taste, his Elegant Compositions, his Pathetic Performance, were well Known and justly Admired. In Compliance with his own Intentions, a Genuine Edition of his Works is now Presented to the Public. For Such a Publication, no Apology is necessary. That they were His, is sufficient to justify their Appearance, and to recommend them to all good Judges and true Lovers of Musick.
