Misc. Comments

According to the Wikipedia article, only eight arias survive from this opera. Further down in the same article, mention is made of a 2001 reconstruction of "nine" surviving arias. Whether it was eight or nine, it is difficult to ascertain whether there was originally a chorus in it. For the time being it is tagged with no chorus, but if a score is ever unearthed that indicates otherwise, the tag can be changed.
