Grove Music gives the solo parts as SSATB, whereas the King's Consort recording uses SSATBB. Michael Talbot, in the notes to that recording says, "At some point before c1719 Vivaldi composed the original version of his Beatus vir in C major. This is lost, but two reworkings of it survive." This probably explains the discrepancy in voicings. Tagged generically for "voices".
