Notated in brown ink on 10-stave paper.

Slightly worn, creased, foxed, and soiled; minor tears to edges with no loss.

Numerous manuscript copies copies of the canzonettas located in RISM.

"Millico composed several cantatas and, more importantly, numerous arias, canzonettas and duets, often with harp accompaniment. The fact that many of these works were published individually and in collections, along with the extraordinarily wide circulation in manuscript of the smaller vocal and instrumental compositions, thought to be late works, testifies to their popularity and to Millico’s reputation as a singer, composer and teacher." Gerhard Croll and Irene Brandenburg in Grove Music Online.
