Chaconne ou Passacaille in G minor

Bauyn Manuscript; No 96 in the 1985 Moroney edition

Of the enigmatically titled ‘Chaconne ou Passacaille’ Davitt Moroney has suggested it may be less the case that these two names are interchangeable here, but more that this work could be played at the speed traditionally associated with either of these genres.

À propos du titre énigmatique «Chaconne ou Passacaille», Davitt Moroney suggère qu’il s’agit peut-être moins du fait que ces deux noms sont ici interchangeables, mais plutôt que cette œuvre pouvait se jouer à la vitesse traditionnellement associée à l’un ou l’autre de ces genres.

Bezüglich des rätselhaften Titels „Chaconne ou Passacaille“ hat Davitt Moroney angemerkt, dass wahrscheinlich nicht die beiden Namen austauschbar sind, sondern eher, dass das Werk in den Tempi gespielt werden kann, die diesen beiden Genres traditionsgemäß zugeschrieben werden.
