According to Grove Music, Handel's keyboard works are "all probably for harpsichord, and written before 1720, unless otherwise stated". Since there is nothing to the contrary for this work, it is probably harpsichord. The version in Guilmant's École classique de l’orgue has been arranged for a pedal organ, but the third stave is not original to Handel.
