Score is described as "vocal score" but no accompaniment is specified other than "piano accompaniment" (and percussion, which is also shown in the score, e.g. Tambourin and Castanets in the Chorus of Dancers: Minuet) in any case.
The story (The Mischianza- not the book from which the episode is excerpted) concerns the departure of Admiral Howe from the colonies-soon-to-be-a-nation, and the party and dance that resulted. (This is explained better in the score!)
