Though the bassoon/cello part to no.1 says "ad lib.", the bassoon/cello parts to the other movements do not, although the part itself is very much a continuo part. The only place where it differs from the continuo part is in "Victorious Sound" where it sometimes follows the choral bass part. In tagging, the bassoon/cello part has been included with the continuo.
