There are 14 verses, of which some are specified with "Instr." or "Vocibus Instrumentis", but the instruments are unspecified. The Caillard recording uses brass and organ. The 1607 manuscript does not have separate instrumental parts, so presumably, they double the voice parts, with any keyboard instrument realising the harmony.
