Vaudeville pour les Flageolets

This short piece, quoted by Marin Mersenne in his Harmonie Universelle is one of the earliest pieces explicitly written for the flageolet. How many of the parts were to be played on the flageolet is unclear, however, although it does suggest that more sizes were historically available than were found in later periods.
