This is the final volume in the Signum set.

Disc 2 is a set of "bonus tracks." The CD2#1 was recorded as a part of Volume 6, but would not fit on that program. CD2#2,3 are considered dubious attributions, and CD2#4 is an alternate reading of CD1#7.

Performing members of Charivari Agréable & Chapelle du Roi are not named.
