Misc. Comments

Two versions: 1737, 1754. ("Rameau made extensive revisions (mainly cuts) in 1754"- Staines, "The Rough Guide to Classical Music"- to quote one of only many sources, of course; consider too Charles William Dill's 1989 dissertation for Princeton University, The reception of Rameau's Castor et Pollux in 1737 and 1754.)
