About the Kram Editions
Three versions are posted. The first is true to the original (though the violetta line is transcribed into treble clef). Movements 1 and 5 use two viols notated in alto and tenor clefs, though the parts (which might have been written later) say viola. The second complete orchestral version places the two viols as violas and notates them both in alto clef. A piano reduction is also included to assist in easily creating your own continuo part (though some continuo is added where only continuo was present). The final version is a piano vocal score on the Arrangements and Transcriptions tab. The continuo part at the end of the original scan contains figures which obviously were written in at a later date. For the most part they seem reasonable so I kept them. Very interesting comparing this with Bach's Cantata on the same text (BWV170, written in 1726).
