Navigation etc.

  • The four instruments notated using C clefs are identified as violas in RISM. They appear to double the voices. The clefs used are soprano, soprano, alto and tenor. It is also likely that these are viol parts.
  • RISM does not list choral parts in addition to the solo parts. (But the score does - "tutti" "solo")
  • The bassoon part follows the organ part, and thus is part of the continuo.
