35/n - n is not 3, 5 or 6 (35/3 is the G major Lateinische Festmesse, 5 is the C major, 6 is the E♭ major. All for chorus, orchestra or strings, and organ, not chorus alone.)
Also, opening movement is in A minor (and has orchestra and organ accompaniment); did the composer refer to this as an A major mass himself or is that an interpolation by the editor? -- actually, the published edition (by Marco Berra, Prague; see RISM) says "A-moll", and another, arranged edition, ms copy, says A dur... the former is clearly it.
