There is a nice selection of Roseingrave's pieces transcribed and edited by
Denis Stevens in The Penn State Music Series no 2. Probably cheaper than
Broude Bros if it is still available - which I know not.
In the introduction there is a splendid quote from Mrs Delany:
"Mr Roseingrave, who was sent away from St George's Church [Hanover Square
London] on account of his mad fits, is now in Ireland, and at times can play
very well on the harpsichord."
Can't we all - at times? :-)
