Many of the songs were selected from the works of Bach, Galuppi, Jomelli, and other Italian writers, one of the first of the time. In 1783 Dr. Arnold became Organist and Composer to the Chapel Royal. Shortly afterwards he published a continuation of Boyce's 'Cathedral Music,' in four volumes. In 1786 Dr. Arnold issued proposals for a uniform edition of Handel's works, and the list was headed by George III as a subscriber for twenty-five copies. He was not able to complete his plans and finished only five out of Handel's forty-three operas. In 1789 Dr. Arnold was appointed Conductor of the Academy of Ancient Music
