Misc. Comments

  • Grove Music describes these as "sacred dialogues between two soloists and chorus". Bibliothèque national de France refers to them as sacred cantatas.
  • The references to "choeur" may refer to the fact that all 3 voices are singing together, rather than there is a separate chorus involved. Both Grove Music and RISM treat it as for 2-4 voices
  • Couldn't find a section for 4 voices, though I doubt both RISM and Grove would get that wrong.
