Summary Music assistants often have a poor press. Franz Süssmayr is known only for his controversial completion of Mozart's Requiem, while Robert Craft is known largely for his role as Stravinsky's assistant. As Handel's amanuensis, John Christopher Smith has suffered a similar fate. Moreover, confusion has prevailed as to his identity. His father shared the same Christian names and was Handel's original amanuensis. Thus the omens for Smith's musical legacy were poor from the start. This project seeks to reappraise Smith the composer, whose prolific music bubbles over with brilliance, wit, and charm - not to mention an irresistible penchant for trills!
