Navigation etc.

At least one number includes three choirs: SSA, TTB, TBB. Another requires two SATB choirs. However, a choir large enough to be split into SSATTBBB would simply sing divisi.

A 2009 recording was issued in 2013.

Does anyone (Hill?) have a guess as to composition dates and orchestration? (Ries G.’s Frankfurt 1829 could refer to composition or premiere??)
