Arne's first known composition. The surviving arias have been arranged for voice, flute, and continuo. Tagged with unknown instrumentation for now, until we have further information. The header for "Was ever nymph" states that the aria was sung by Susannah Arne (Rosamond); however, in the libretto, this aria is to be sung by the King.
