Unfortunately, the music to a great many of those listed before 1900 is lost. These lists are not very useful unless they tell us where the performance materials can be found - a little extra work on the part of the compilers would have added greatly to their value.
One wonders about the quality of some of the late 19th century British symphonies (certainly Joseph Street's, the scores of which are in BL and which I have seen, are pretty uninspired), but there may be some gold among the dross and I particularly wish that the MSS of Algernon Ashton's symphonies and concertos, which were never published, had not been destroyed in the blitz. I suspect they were better than good.
