According to Bruzane, manuscript full score lost in a fire in 1887. Orchestration on score, and there has been a full-orchestra recording of some excerpts, but it seems that the vocal score may be all that's left of the work?... Fortunately, there are so many instrumental indications in the vocal score that some reconstruction can be performed from this.
