Description: From "A New set of Psalm Tunes and Anthems, in four Parts, for the Use of Country Choirs: with an Introduction to Music: by William Bennett." Exeter c.1770. "Country Choirs" is a term often used to mean choirs in parish churches and proprietary chapels, as yet without an organ installed. Other instruments were employed instead (particularly 'cello or bassoon to reinforce the bass). Bennett has provided sufficient clues (cues) to indicate that he intended a bass instrument to be employed in this piece. The editorial keyboard reduction should be used only for practice, and not performance. If a bass instrument is available, it should be used to double the bass line, from which it diverges only in minor instances.
