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.

ACT I. 

Overture - 

Thro' all the employments of life 
'Tis woman that seduces all mankind 
If any wench Venus' girdle wear 
If love the virgin's heart invade 
A maid is like the golden ore 
Virgins are like the fair flower 
Our Polly is a sad slut (Duet) 
Can love be controlled by advice ? 

Polly, you might have toyed and kissed (Duet) 

1 like a ship in storms was tossed 
A fox may steal your hens, sir 

O ponder well - 

Pretty Polly, say (Duet) 

My heart was so free 

Were I laid on Greenland's coast (Duet) 

O what pain it is to part (Duet) 

ACT II. 

Fill every glass (Solo and Chorus) 

Fill every glass (Solo and Chorus) (Second version) 

Let us take the Road (Solo and Chorus) - 

Music to dialogue - 

If the heart of a man 

Youth's the season (Chorus and Dance) 

Before the barn-door crowing (Solo and Chorus) 

At the tree I shall suffer 

Interlude - 

Introduction (Newgate Prison) 

Man may escape from rope and gun 

How cruel are the traitors 

The first time at the looking-glass 

When you censure the age (Duet) 

Is then his fate decreed ? 

You'll think ere many days ensue 

Thus when the swallow 

How happy could I be with either 

I'm bubbled, I'm troubled (Duet) 

Cease your funning - 

Why, how now, Madam Flirt ? (Duet) 

No power on earth (Ensemble) 

Melodrama - - - - 

ACT III. 

Introduction - 

In the days of my youth (Trio) 

Interlude — " Molly Brazen " - 

A curse attends that woman's love (Duet) 

Come, sweet lass - 

Hither, dear husband (Duet) 

Which way shall I turn me ? - 

The charge is prepared 

Hornpipe (Dance of prisoners in chains) - 

Macheath's soliloquy - 

Would I might be hang'd (Trio) 

Thus I stand like the Turk (Solo and Chorus)
