  • Giroust set the Super Flumina Babylonis twice. One of the settings, according to Grove Music, was submitted to "a contest sponsored by the Concert Spirituel in 1768 . . . There were three finalists, and when Giroust was revealed as the composer not only of the first prize, but also of a specially demanded second prize, there was a great sensation. The second setting was compared with the work of Pergolesi and it seems d’Alembert and others supported it believing it to be by Philidor."
  • It is not known whether this is the first or second of these settings.
