The present work was first published in 1810-1811 in collaboration with the musicologist François-Joseph-Marie Fayolle (1774-1852).
"Fayolle is best known for his compilation of the Dictionnaire des musiciens. To write this work, for which Choron supplied virtually nothing but the introduction and a few articles, Fayolle had to rely heavily on the work of the earlier music historians and lexicographers Gerber, Forkel, Burney and La Borde." Jean Mongrédien in Grove Music Online.
