Boyce also had an interest in the history and science of music, and published an important three-volume work of church music, 'Cathedral Music', which was influential in the repertoire of church music over the next century. According to O'Donoghue this plate was published by John Keyse Sherwin (1751? - 1790) in 1775, so this could be a reissue.
