Note.
HE present arrangement of cc
The
Beggar's Opera,'' made for Mr. Nigel
Playfair's revival at the Lyric Theatre,
Hammersmith, has been prepared from

two early editions kindly lent to me


by Mr. J. G. Craururd and Mr. Barry
Jackson. For these editions, Dr.
Pepusch and Dr. Arne were respectively
responsible. The material contained in them consists of an

Overture and the tunes of the songs, to which figured basses


were added. These tunes differ very much in detail in the two
editions, but in general 1 have used the more authentic and
simpler versions of Dr. Pepusch, in preference to those made
later by Dr. Arne. The Overture also bears traces of the

variation in taste and style characteristic of the two editors,

and is claimed by both of them (or their publishers) as their


own composition. There is little doubt, however, that it was
originally written by Dr. Pepusch, and, apart from re-scoring
it, I have here left it very much as it stood in his edition,

slightly revising and stiffening the texture of the counterpoint.

The figured basses were not such as could be used for present

purposes, and I have re-harmonibcd the Airs, provided accom-


paniments, introductions, etc., for them, arranging certain of

them as concerted pieces, and adding music to them in various

ways where reasons of stage action have made it necessary.


Additions will also be found here and there in the shape of
Interludes, etc. I have scored the whole for String Quintet,
Flute,Oboe and Harpsichord, with occasional use of the Viola

d'Amore and Viola da Gamba.


The parts of Macheath and Lucy Lockit were originally

planned for a tenor and a soprano. These I have re-arranged


for a bass-baritone and a contralto, partly because of the particular
circumstances of Mr. Playfair's production, partly for reasons

of contrast with other voices in the opera.
