Largo - Allegro assai - Largo - Andante allegro

The andante allegro (final movement) of this piece had great success as Felton's gavotte, then was associated with the song "Farewell Manchester". It has most recently been popular as the Morris Dance "Ring o' bells" (Lichfield). Felton was a prebendary of Hereford Cathedral and, according to Charles Burney, the butt of a drollery by Handel. Solicited to subscribe to Felton's second set of organ concertos, Handel's response was: "Tamn your seluf and go to der teiffel! A barson make concerto! Why he no make sarmon?" [Damn your self and go to the devil! A parson compose a concerto! Why doesn't he compose a sermon?]. The original set of parts from which this edition has been made has independent concertino and ripieno violin parts; these are identical in all but name, and give no clue as to a layering of texture. The figured bass has been retained in the 'cello part of the current edition, but no realization for a second keyboard instrument has been made.
