Instrumentation differs per work, given on "Index sex Missarum" (first page, after cover, precedes parts, also contains German performance instructions.)
2nd edition published 1829 according to RISM.
(There is a "deest" above the "fagotto" on the parts at BSB since bassoon parts are not present there but it seems that at least one of the other copies of this work may contain bassoon parts, so removing the dubiousness-indicating (?).)
estimates 1815 for publication date. (Assuming the same Buhler, this is odd considering that his piano sonata op.12 may have been published earlier. It seems to have been composed earlier; perhaps it was simply published later.)
