Note the Loeillet suite is a collection of pieces once attributed to Lully and AFAICT wasn't a suite. The five works collected in it come from a few sources. You may recognise some of them from Godowsky's Renaissance suite where the works are also misattributed to Lully.

Those errors derive from a couple of 19th century editions, and have hung around for a while (Schirmer's Editions (amongst others), anyone?). The keyboard style is a dead giveaway.

In fact there were a couple of JBL's, contemporary with each other. Much fun for musicologists. All sorted now, I think :-)

(1) Pieter [Pierre Noël] Loeillet
(2) Pierre Loeillet
(3) Jean Baptiste Loeillet (i) [‘John Loeillet of London’]
(4) Jacques [Jacob] Loeillet
(5) Jean Baptiste Loeillet (ii) [‘Loeillet de Gant’]
(6) Etienne Joseph Loeillet
