Misc. Notes:

scan: score scanned at 600dpi
filter: score filtered with 2-point algorithm explained in High Quality Scanning
I provide the original scanned version and the filtered, because the filter does some changes (smoothening, sharpening borders) and some portions of the scan get lost sometimes (when they are too small e.g.) - so you can choose your favorite. You may ask me for a manually cleaned version.
BSB: Originally scanned at about 180pi, converted to 600dpi monochrome and cleaned manually.

Misc. Comments

Grove Music lists only one soprano soloist.

(Grove's source for voice range?- manuscript? letters? something? Grove is not itself a primary source but must refer to such :) - Schissel)

The score lists only une récitante, p.18. As to- Sarrazin fl.1920?- had published Le commandement unique in 1920 which seems? not to have had an earlier edition.
