RISM has 3 entries for this work, none of which are an autograph manuscript. The first has 4 solo voices, and orchestra (including oboes). The second has 4 solo voices, and orchestra (including flutes and oboes); no chorus is listed but the final movement is marked "[Choral]". The third has no scoring, but lists the final movement as "[Choral]" and mentions "Flauto" (which is probably recorder) in one of the movements. All three of these would effectively be tagged the same way anyway, so this page will be tagged for 4 voices, mixed chorus and orchestra.
