Misc. Notes Scantailor and Graphicsmagick used though perhaps inappropriately here (source material in this case not TIFF but JPEGs and result more difficult to read; may upload another version differently-processed and possibly more readable in that case.) Also, part reads "Tenors and Bassi in unison", suggesting - perhaps just an enlargement of forces over a bass-only choir?
