Organ Concerto in B flat major, Op 7 No 6
Op 7 No 6 in B flat major was clearly assembled for Walsh’s publication without Handel’s knowledge. The two outer movements originate from the Sinfonia in B flat of 1747. There is some evidence that either or both movements were played during performances of Joshua on 9 March 1748 and Susanna on 10 February 1749. Marked Organo ad libitum, the central movement on this recording is a transcription of the Allemande from the Harpsichord Suite Set 2 No 7.
