Alexandre Pierre-François Boëly - Plain Chant du Kyrie eleison

Here is the second of 12 pieces for the mass (cunctipotens genitor) by Boely, from the ms. 169 (municipal library of Versailles). A note in the manuscript as follows:

"Plein-jeu avec les pedales d'anches
ou bien
Les memes
Si l'orgue n'a
pas du plein jeu"
reffering to using the grand choeur from the previous piece (in the previous recording i posted "rentree de procession") instead of the plein jeu, possibly indicating that these pieces were composed (or at least this manuscript version) with the organ of St Gervais where Boely frequented (where, as typical during that time period, in the name of "progress" in organ building the mixtures were removed at the request of his predecessor Gervais Francois Couperin around 1810, and were not reinstated until the 1840's at the behest of Boely, these pieces being composed well before that, and probably the same case with this manuscript version)
