This piece is without title, but is described in the prologue (spoken in the character of Momus) as "A new fram'd Entertainment, no Comedie, no Tragedie, no Opera, no Pastoral, no Farce." It seems a kind of extravaganza, or mixture of masque, pantomime and musical farce. Descriptions of several of the scenes are given. The name of James Kremberg, one of the Musicians in ordinary to Queen Anne, is affixed to some of the music as composer, and it is probable that the whole is by him.
