"Bizet (G.)" (probably Georges Bizet) made a piano solo transcription of this, published by Heugel in 1867 (as L'oie du Caire) (Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France 2e série, 56e année, Nº 47, 23 Novembre 1867, Nº p.542, r.2852.)
RISM does list choral parts; doesn't seem to exist in the NMA version. The list of has choral parts that may relate to the parts of the libretto never composed by Mozart.
