Description: Ten works, all attributed to Pergolesi, only one by him, four others whose composers are now known for certain and five by "Anon." - a tribute to the Italian composer's popularity and result of his early death: his known works were so popular that the market needed more regardless of how they were obtained. Needless to say, they are close to Pergolesi in a broadly stylistic sense.
