The Life and Poems of Anne Hunter Haydn's Tuneful Voice
Liverpool University Press

The early published poems of Anne Hunter appeared anonymously in anthologies, books of music or as broadsheets; they can be identified as hers because the texts are among her manuscripts. This is also true of her Nine canzonetts ... and six airs, for which she wrote both words and music. Anne's manuscripts are in several collections, most notably those of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, the University of Aberdeen, the National Library of Scotland and a private collection (the Jobson Papers), with a few in the Wellcome Library and the British Library. The majority are unpublished. Many of Anne's poems appear in several different manuscript volumes with slight variations in wording, punctuation and capitalization. Almost all are fair copies, written out in Anne's own hand in her old age, rather than original working drafts.
