Misc. Comments

The "viola" parts are notated in a mixture of treble, alto and bass clef. The first two parts are both in a higher register than was used for viola at this period and the 4th is out of range of the standard viola. It's more likely that this was intended for a consort of instruments of the viol or violin family.
