William Boyce (September 11, 1711 - February 7, 1779) is widely regarded as one of the most important English-born composers of the 18th century.

Born in London, Boyce was a choirboy at St Paul's Cathedral before studying music with Maurice Greene after his voice broke. His first professional appointment came in 1734 when he got a job as an organist at the Oxford Chapel. He went on to take a number of similar posts before being appointed Master of the King's Musick in 1755 and becoming organist at the Chapel Royal in 1758.

His Symphony No. 1 is scored for 2 Oboes and Strings but it will work perfectly with just strings.

The PDF file contains the score, oboe, harpsichord and string parts.
