Roland [LWV 65] - Suite
The Suite includes 18 instrumental pieces, including the previously published Chaconne, and 8 choir pieces, selected from the tragédie Roland. The sources are the first edition of 1685 (see frontispiece on the cover), and, for the numbers of the figured bass, the second edition of 1716, except for choirs, based on the first edition figures. Both editions, available at Gallica, BNF, Paris, are by J-B-C. Ballard.
