About the text

  • Author: Joseph-François Duché de Vancy

Instrumentation

  • Pan (Basse)

Notes

“Jacquet de La Guerre’s original score was most likely written in five parts, after the tradition established by Lully. As only Ballard’s partition reduite survives, however, only the upper two instrumental parts and the basse continue are extant.” IMSLP
