Navigation etc.

CPDL describes the instrumentation as "a double quartet requiring 2 recorders (both doubling oboe), 2 first violas, 2 second violas, 2 bassoons and bc". Tagged as such for now, but this is subject to confirmation and correction once the manuscript can be examined.

  • Interestingly, BnF says the "orchestra" is "orchestre à cordes 4 parties".
