Misc. Comments

The first cantata in this set, which starts on p.21, is Psiché, is labelled "Cantate IIe". Phédre et Hippolyte (p.35) is unnumbered. L'Amour et Psiché is "Cantata IIIIe". Given the missing pp.3-20, there is a cantata missing. However, another set, at this page -- 3 Cantates séparées (Bourgeois, Thomas-Louis) -- has a copy of Psiché, also on a p.21, preceded by a cantata entitled Zéphire et Flore. Therefore, Zéphire et Flore must be the 1st cantata that is missing from this set.
