Chaconne & Passacaille da "Medée" [H 491]
The source is the printed edition of „Medée / Tragedie mise en Musique par Monsieur Charpentier“, Christoph Ballard, Paris, 1694. Chaconne and Passacaille are extracted from the second Act. Source is available at Petrucci Music Library. The ancient edition is almost error free. Sometimes the figured bass numbers are unreadable. The original clefs are in the score, while separate parts have currently used clefs.
