Misc. Comments

The Eitner edition seems to be a type of vocal score. There are indications in it for "Instrumente" and "Instrumentalbass", though these are not specified. Grove Music mentions a manuscript that had a Preface "the instrumentalists accompanying the singers must be seated where they can see the singers’ faces and can best hear them, so that they can keep together; and the instruments must be careful not to double the singers’ melody and must never embellish the accompaniment. Gagliano further called upon the orchestra to provide a sinfonia before the raising of the curtain." Thus, the work clearly had an orchestra of some sort, so it has been tagged for orchestra, though if the manuscript Grove Music mentions is uploaded, the tag may have to be changed to strings only.
