Misc. Comments

Full score is available @ BNF though not yet digitized - see links from BNF Data.

Libretto published in 1819 by Didot (states that the play had been presented in 1819 but does not mention Reicha, so one assumes that the play is meant...) Apparently the music has, except for "morceaux détachés" (selected songs) and the overture, remained in manuscript. (The full score is over 1500 pages in 4 volumes; the selected songs above are unlikely to represent it very adequately even considering the arrangement and the reduction in pages from manuscript to engraving.)
