Misc. Comments

  • Facsimile of composer's MS, previously unpublished, made available by courtesy of The Bodleian Library, Oxford.
  • RISM gives the scoring as "S (2), A, T, B, b".
  • The keyboard continuo realization of the figured bass is a suggestion only; performers should feel free to improvise in the style of the period.
