Edition prepared from B.L. Add Ms 49599, a late seventeenth century collection of music for players in England. Misattributed therein to Gottfied Finger, this piece is from Phaëton, 1683: Chaconne ou dancent une troupe d'Egyptiens & d'Egyptiennes, une troupe d'Ethiopiens & d'Ethiopiennes, une troupe d'Indiens & d'Indiennes. For the more prosaic world of London music-making the transcriber has reduced the number of parts from five to four (omitting the taille/quinte). This edition therefore is offered not as an accurate record of Lully's intentions, but as a representation of how his music was treated by English musicians.

The string parts include a 3rd violin part (treble clef) as an alternative to the viola.
