Misc. Comments

Manuscript parts [VM1-942] are in three different hands, including that of Charpentier. The parts, collected in one volume, are as follows:
Vocal parts: dessus (10 p.).
Choral parts: hautte contre g[rand]. c[hoeur]. (6 p.), taille grand choeur (5 p.), basse taille g[rand]. c[hoeur]. (6 p.), basse g[rand] ch[oeur] - 6 copies (6, 6, 6, 6 6, 5 p.).
Orchestral parts: Pr[emier] dessus de violon (8 p.), second dessus de violon (8 p.), basse continue orgue (8 p.), premiere flute (8 p.), seconde flute (8 p.), Pr[emier] dessus de violon (8 p.), S[econ]d dessus de violon (8 p.), dessus de violon 2 ex. (8 p. each), haute contre de violon 2 ex. (8 p. each), taille de violon 2 ex. (8 p. each), basse continue de viole 2 ex. (8 p. each), basse continue pour l'orgue (8 p.), basse continue de violon (8 p.).

The instrumental partbooks seem to reflect two different versions of the work. The first three (?) [BNF says four] parts, as well as the last one, represent a smaller version, and the remaining parts represent a larger version. Charpentier's autograph [Mélanges autographes, Vol. 27], however, has only four instrumental parts.
