- Grove Music lists this as being for 2 violins and b.c., though 'dessus' usually refers to viols.
- Grove Music's article on dessus says "The term may apply collectively to the high instruments within a consort; for example, dessus de hautbois or even dessus de symphonie. During the 17th and 18th centuries dessus alone sometimes meant violin, more properly called dessus de violon."
- According to Haynes "some (perhaps all) of this music was written for hautboys ... and may have been demonstration pieces for the new design of hautboys", see Bruce Haynes "The eloquent Oboe", Oxford early music series. Tags for oboe have been added, on the basis of this.
In recent years the authorship of these sonatas has been clarified. Most are by Lully, however, the following have been found certainly to be by Marin Marais: Nos 15-20, no.26, nos 28-36. They were published in Marais' Pièces en trio pour les Flûtes, Violon, & Dessus de Viole, published by him in Paris in 1692 (RISM M 387). Stylistically, Nos. 21-25, no.27 and no.37 are similar to Marais' pieces and no.38 Symphonie is similar to the dialogue movements in Italian trio sonatas. For more information see the preface to Trios pour le coucher du roy edited by Herbert Schneider, Paris: Heugel, 1987.
