Nove Overture a quattro, due violini, viola e basso da Francesco Barsanti di Lucca. Opera Quarta. (?)Edinburgh, c. 1745. Barsanti spent much of his professional life in London, and in Edinburgh, where he was particularly esteemed. Several of his overtures quote popular tunes of the day. The Allegro of this Overture has as its subject a song tune, "To you fair ladyes" (which appears in several collections and ballad operas of the period (correctly: To all you ladies now on land).
