When one thinks of dance music at the French baroque court of Louis XIV, visions of lavish productions involving orchestras, choruses, dancers and actors immediately come to mind.   Indeed, there were countless ballets, operas, and divertissements which all employed large numbers and varieties of instruments and players.   The opera Alceste, for example, is said to have employed no less than 30 lutes in the orchestra, and one of the most famous fêtes, a celebration which took place in Versailles in 1664, required "a small army" of entertainers, including many musicians, to amuse over six hundred invited guests over the course of nine days!   . . .   Louis XIV adored music and dance, and therefore surrounded himself with it from the moment he awoke until he dropped off to sleep.   For this purpose, the monarch chose the best vocalists, lutenists, gambists, harpsichordists and violinists to entertain as he saw fit.
