Navigation etc.

The manuscript scan is disorganized and filled with many unfinished and unnamed pieces. It is difficult to determine the orchestration for some works. Even Wikipedia lists the Venier vocal pieces as "doubtful." The contents list focuses on pieces that can be cross-checked, have names, and are mostly clear for their orchestration.
