Navigation etc.

  • The various RISM entries for P.67 show a variation in the number of solo voices, but in any case this may not be by Pergolesi at all (see next point). Therefore, the tagging has been done for multiple voices without giving a specific number, and the orchestra in all versions has at least some winds, so there is no alteration in that tag.
  • The incipit for the Caffarelli edition of the Tecum Principium matches an entry under the name of Domingo Terradellas, with the comparison notes at the bottom of the page.
