Misc. Comments

Viola d'amore tuning: F A c f a d'

Grove lists this under doubtful works; Grove's instrument details are also perhaps a little mistaken:

Partita, F, 2 ob, tpt, va d’amore, db, D-Dl [=SLUB Dresden; instrumentation should be: 2ob hn vda bc], new score CZ-Pnm;
Partita, F, va d’amore, ob, hn, vn, b, lost, cited in Breitkopf catalogue; [this could be the same as above, with alternative instrumentation, i.e. ob vn instead of 2ob]
Partita, G, lute, ob, 2 vn, b, lost, cited in Breitkopf catalogue.
