In 1935, Germaine Tailleferre was asked to write the stage music for Jean Sarment´s play "Madame Quinze"
which was produced by the Comédie Française. The play was about Madame de Pompadour and Louis XV and
also featured the Société de la Musique Ancienne (Henri Casadesus playing the viola d´amour, Marius Casadesus
on the quinton, Régina Patorni-Casadesus playing the harpsichord, Lucette Casadesus at the viola de gamba,
Maurice Devilliers at the bass viol). The production was reprised by the Comédie Française in 1950, this time at
the Odéon theatre and Tailleferre revised her score at that time.
These three pieces are not present in the 1935 mansucript score at the Paris Opera Libarary. They were apparently
added to the score for the 1950 production and are sourced through materials at the Library of the Comédie Française
