Description: Following the example of both composers and entrepreneurs of chamber music in mid 18th century Paris, the principals of this recording have rescored operatic vocal and instrumental numbers from a ballet and two operas for smaller forces (two violins, two flutes, viola da gamba, double bass, bassoon, theorbo and harpsichord). Not only this, but they are arranged so as to form a "libretto" in their own right. French-English texts. Juliette Perret (soprano), Étienne Bazola (baritone), Ensemble Les Surprises; Juliette Guignard.
