243 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 2,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Von Händels Concerti grossi op. 3 existiert keine von ihm verfasste Urschrift und sie sind wohl in dieser Form nicht selbst von Händel herausgegeben, sondern von seinem Verleger John Walsh, der 1734 eine wahre Flut Händelscher Werke herausbrachte. Für seine Edition des op. 3 hatte er eigenmächtig einzelne Instrumentalstücke aus Händels geistlichen und weltlichen Werke gesammelt und zu Concerti grossi gruppiert. Der Erfolg gab ihm recht und heiligte die Mittel, denn die Musik fand reißenden Absatz und ist wegen ihres großen Abwechslungsreichtums bis heute geschätzt
