Roland [LWV 65] - Suite
The Suite includes 18 instrumental pieces taken from the tragédie Roland, including the previously published Chaconne and the following Chœur. 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 Chœur, based on the first edition bass figures. Both editions, available at Gallica, BNF, Paris, are by J-B-C. Ballard.
