This arrangement is from The 12 Concertos, op 2 originally composed by John Humphries, and published in London about 1740. The 12th Concerto of this set is significant as the first known English concerto for horn, an instrument which had been heard in the capital since the end of the 17th Century. 

Though no relation to the original composer, the arranger/editor, John Humphries was fascinated with producing and performing a Concerto from someone of his own namesake featuring his instrument. 

This concerto, which about hearing it, the audience will recognize the definite Baroque sound and style of the period in which it was composed. It is very pleasant piece for a recital or church performance. While it offers a different challenges for all levels of players, its range allows it to be played by younger player who would like the opportunity to play a Baroque concerto.
