Thanks to Gill Bickley for finding this set of You tube part guides: https://www.youtube.com/user/Mathias75018/search?query=Charpentier (By Mathias Charton. The parts are mixed, and there are other pieces by Charpentier on this list).
Another tip from Leon to help with your listening and learning: Consider purchasing https://www.audiostretch.com - it changes the tempo without changing the pitch, AND will change the pitch up or down, a semitone at a time – it’s great!

Here is an "Album" containing all the tracks for the concert - you should be able to click "download" and save all the files to your computer or tablet, play them like an album or upload them into the Audio Stretch app. The album cover is the concert poster!
