This is a revision of Actéon, with the role of Actéon sung by a dessus (female
soprano) and the sc. 2 Air d'Aréthuze et Choeur revised and assigned to Diane. 
The manuscript indicates which movements are to be transposed a tone lower,
which remain at original pitch, and contains music for the revised numbers.  In
the table to the left: 

indicates a revised movement (completely written out in the MS)
indicates a movement transposed a step lower (as per MAC's verbal directions)
indicates a movement left as is (also as per MAC's directions)
