Op 7 No 2 in A major was completed on 5 February 1743 and probably given its first performance at Covent Garden during the premiere of Samson
a fortnight later. The first, second and fourth movements are each based on material by Muffat. In the manuscript a third movement is simply marked Organo ad libitum. For this recording a transcription of the Larghetto from the D major Violin Sonata is used.
