Two recently discovered facts: (a) the opening of this Rameau cantata is virtually identical to that of a Telemann sonata; (b) during a visit to Paris in 1737–8, Telemann published a tribute to Rameau. Using ‘forensic’ and other techniques, this presentation shows how these facts are related. In the process, it explores the possibility that the lyrics of the cantata are by Voltaire, shedding light on the extraordinary event for which Rameau composed it.
