  • This RISM link gives Hercules amoureux as the title, with the LWV number 17/13. However, it lists it as an "opera-ballet", but doesn't give a scoring with voices. Further, IMSLP has a page for that work, but it doesn't include this part. The vocal part is a "Recit de Venuz" on p.70 of the Foucault score.
  • The discrepancy is probably explained by this RISM link, which describes this work as "Ballet des sept planètes (ballet final d'Ercole amante ; livret d'Isaac de Benserade)", and gives it the same LWV number 17. The entry above describes Hercules amoureux as "(entrées de ballet pour Ercole amante de Francesco Cavalli, sur un livret de Francesco Buti ; 1re représentation : Paris, Tuileries, salle des machines, 7 février 1662), LWV17 ".
