Tendresses Bachiques
recueillis et mise en ordre par Christophe Ballard.


As with his three volumes of Brunetes here again we find Christophe Ballard trawling the families formidable back catalogue, this time for a collection of airs that are "tout à la fois Tendres et à Boire"

Further connecting the Tendresses Bacchiques with the Brunetes and Parodies, Ballard notes in introducing them that he has followed the same format and this because the Tendresses may be considered as a supplement to these earlier volumes.

This link is also born out by a catalogue page which lists the three volumes of Parodies, three volumes of Brunetes, the volume we have here, and nine volumes of "Paroles d'Opéra". The works are priced by group or for the complete sixteen volumes.
