This is the full score plus separate parts for 5 string instruments. Houle's edition includes an introduction, notes on performance practice, full score, & individual parts. A short section by Herbert Myers provides directions for orchestral bowing technique based on the treatises of Muffat, Monteclair, & Dupont. The score consist of an overture & 12 dances, including pantomimic & comical dances as well as bourees, gavottes, & menuets. The music is characterized by a mixture of modal & tonal harmonies, & its metrical shifts & melodic twists suggest the lively comedy of Beachamp's dancing.
