He wrote many operas, mostly comic, and a four volume collection of songs for solo voice, Choix de chansons mises en musique illustrated by Jean-Michel Moreau.

Many of the songs from the collection were later published individually through the efforts of the English folksong collector Lucy Etheldred Broadwood. His Essai sur la musique ancienne et moderne was published in 1780. La Borde was guillotined during the French Revolution in 1794. Read more on Last.fm.
