The Restoration in 1660 and the relaxation of Puritan austerity led to an unprecedented upsurge in London's musical life. At that time, the most striking difference between London and other European capitals was the abundance and variety of London's public concerts, which induced many foreign as well as English musicians to make the capital their permanent residence. Among a number of leading composers actually born in London were Thomas arne, S. Arnold, William Boyce, M. Greene and S. Storace.
William Boyce was perhaps the most talented composer England had produced since Purcell. He was an organ pupil of Dr Pepusch's, and as early as 1736 succeeded Weldon as composer to the King's Chapel. In 1758 he was appointed organist at the King's Chapel and applied himself to making a complete collection of Cathedral music. His own instrumental works enjoyed great popularity and are among the best of their time. Charles Burney wrote: "His works show an originality and a sincerity that give them an individuality all their own, full of vigour, clarity and lightness without any clash of confiicting styles..."
Boyce Eight Symphonies were issued by Walsh in London in 1760: "Eight Symphonies in eight parts. Six for violins, French Horns and Trumpets, with a bass for the violoncello and harpsichord. Opera seconda." The words "opera seconda" suggest that the symphonies had been in existence for some considerable time before their publication. The fist moder edition was Constant Lambert's in 1728 (Oxford University Press). Lambert's arrangement of the symphonies was characterised by drastic modifications, including transferring the continuo part to the strings. An edition by the American conductor Max Gobermann in 1938 remains true to the original versions, and it is this that has been used for the present recording
