About Pièce à double trompette

One of the interesting anomalies in the literature of the Baroque trumpet is a little piece by André Philidor (l'ainé), entitled «Pièce à double Trompette et de différent ton et Ie gros basson de Philidor». It is found in a small oblong volume in the Paris Bibliothèque Nationale (Res. 921) entitled «Pièces de trompettes / de Mrs de la Lande, Rebelle et Philidor / L 'aisné ... et enrichy des Pièces de Mr Huguenet l'aisné compositeur des triots de trompette plus antien ordinaire de la Musique du Roy.»

This manuscript collection of 283 pages is one of two collections which comprise the extant music for the trumpet and timpani ensemble of Louis XIV's «Grand Ecurie».
