Dubuisson (fl.1666-c.1685) is the sole French viol player-composer between Nicolas Hotman (1613-1663) and Le Sieur de Sainte-Colombe (d.c. 1700) whose works are extant. The most ancient source of French music for viola da gamba, the manuscript is dated September 1st, 1666 and was probably collected for a pupil. It contains 4 suites and 2 pieces notated in tablature as well as instructions for fingering and for bowing.
