From Musica de Camera, or some old tunes new sett, and some new ones, compos'd for the Harpsichord, for the practice and amusement of the Rt. Honble. the Lady Frances Greville, to whom these are dedicated by her ladyship's most dutiful & obedient humble servant, Fred. Nussen. London, 1761.

Nussen used his own compositions and popular airs in general currency (some from the Beggar's Opera) as the basis for his didactic pieces. Amongst them was Richard Leveridge's popular and long-lived tune written to accompany John Gay's ballad.
