These pieces were originally published along with two fugues (also available from the same publisher) in 1783, reprinted 1795. The Hallelujah setting follows the original closely, but the Grand Coronation Anthem is in two parts, a Preludio being followed by the section based on 'God save the King'. The writing in these pieces, clearly aimed at the increasing amateur market at the time, shows a good economy of means.

The introduction includes Marsh's own comments from his journal on when, where and with whom he played these pieces. The music is clearly printed, although page turns may prove difficult in a few places. These generally not over-demanding pieces are great fun to play and should prove excellent experience for the two players in co-ordinating articulation and ornamentation as well as some fast semiquaver runs. They would make attractive additions to the recital repertoire and offer excellent teaching material for either two students or for teacher and student. John Collins
