Scope and Contents
This collection contains music manuscripts dating mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries, which belonged to George Baillie. It mostly consists of arias and cantatas by composers such as Giovanni Bononcini, Alessandro Scarlatti, Giovanni Pergolese, George Handel, and many more. Most of the manuscripts are in Italian.
A few later manuscripts from the 20th century have obviously been subsequently added to the collection, although there is no information on their provenance.
