Couperin's "les sylvains" for baroque guitar ?

Hello,Does any of our dear members know of a possible transcription of Couperin's "les Sylvains" for baroque guitar ? If not, what would be the best key to start with in creating a suitable transcription for a BG in "french" tuning (re-entrant A and octave on D). Knowing that the two best transcriptions for modern guitar are either in D (Philippe Meunier/Breitkopf) or in G (David Russell).Thanks in advance for your tips and answers.Regards,GillesSee More
