This quartet in G major for flute, violin, viola da gamba and violoncello is the only surviving exemplar of at least ten similar works for this instrumentation. Our edition takes thoroughly account of all accessible sources and rejects the slow middle movement which has been identified as inauthentic, i.e. there are only two movements. The introduction is by Peter Holman. The catchy and not very difficult piece is of the lighter types of chamber music composed by Abel and his contemporaries in England at the end of the eighteenth century.
