About the Kram Edition

Typeset the opening sonata (another example of a rare instrumental piece beginning a Graupner cantata). I include an orchestral reduction that is almost note for note the same as the original. Had to move a few viola notes around for playability.

RISM gives SB, not SATB. On a CD of dialogue cantatas.
