Misc. Comments

Operas and other stage works by Johann Adolph Hasse


  • Though RISM has one entry (of many) that lists a chorus, they also sometimes list a number where all soloists are singing as a "chorus". This is tagged for voices and orchestra for now, and a chorus tag can be added later if a full score reveals a chorus separate from the soloists.
  • RISM lists most of the excerpts as strings and continuo. A few excerpts list "orch" with some wind instruments, though it is not known if that is from an original manuscript. Other items with "orch" do not specify which instruments. Tagged as orchestra with winds for now, but this can be changed if a full score reveals only strings/continuo.
