Publications for small military bands of music were issued in abundance around 1800. There is some variety in the instrumentations, but not a great deal. Many included a keyboard reduction part for domestic consumption. One of the ancillary benefits of such pieces as sources is that because so many were dedicated to specific bands, they provide a good picture of how many of them there were and where they were stationed. Where a fife is included as well as clarinet, the lines are in unison. ‘Keyboard’ is usually pianoforte but sometimes harpsichord. An additional set of pieces (not included here) exists as pianoforte parts only, with the marking ‘for full military band’, indicating that they are to be arranged for the forces available. Explanatory notes are marked [a], [b] and so on, and are given at the end of the list. (p.288) (p.289) (p.290) (p.291) (p.292) (p.293)

([a]) A further, apparently optional, fife part doubles the clarinet melody.

([b]) This appears to be an ad libitum addition to a set of pieces for a band of music—a conclusion based on the fact that the open score parts contain subscript notated lines marked (for example) ‘bugle horn’ and ‘Band’ in places where the scored parts for fifes and drums are not sounding.

([c]) Bassoon part is labelled ‘basso’.

([d]) Serpent part is labelled ‘bass horn’.

([e]) Serpent part is labelled ‘basso’.

([f]) One part, labelled ‘Flauto e Oboe 1mo’, appears to be for both flute and oboe primo.

([g]) Bassoons are labelled ‘Principal’ and ‘Bass—Bassoon Solo’.

([h]) A note on the front cover reads ‘N.B. by particular Desire Accompaniments are added (to the Anthem) for a Military Band.’ A note to the Clarinetto Primo part reads: ‘When this Anthem is perform’d by a Band two Octave Flute may be added to the Clarinett parts in the Chorus but in the Verse parts such as Trios Duetts Solos &c the Octave Flutes must be omitted, & I would advise the Clarinetts not to be doubled. A German Flute may also play the alto parts from the score in the Chorus’s [sic]’.
