Description: Delalande left behind 160 pieces of music for performance at King Louis XIV's suppers which were preserved only with dessus and basse parts. For this recording a 1726-36 manuscript with notes by the composer was used to fill out the middle parts and to add oboes and bassoon to approximate the colorful and festive sound one would have heard at the actual occasion.
