Geminiani’s Opus 8 ‘Rules for Playing in a True Taste’ probably appeared in 1748, between the Opus 7 ‘Concerti Grossi’ (which, after delays, were finally issued in February 1748) and ‘A Treatise of Good Taste’, dated 1749, in which Geminiani refered to the Rules as “the last Work that I made public”. The two manuals are intimately connected, a relationship made explicit in the catalogue of Geminiani’s works that appeared in John Johnson’s edition of ‘The Art of Accompaniment’ where the Treatise is described as “the second part of the Rules”.
