Navigation etc.

  • In no.14, although the top line is the "Simph.", at one point "Violon" is specified, so presumably whatever unison instruments are playing, at that point, only a solo violin plays.
  • No.15 mentions "choeur" but only for 16 bars (out of many), so this may mean all the solo voices together. On the other hand, it is over the top instrumental line, and later it indicates "choeur de toutes les basses tailles" in a completely instrumental section, so it may be the equivalent of "tutti".
