Mazzinghi's biography in the Sainsbury and Co. A Dictionary of Musicians From the Earliest Ages (1827, 2nd ed., p.139-144) has what appears to be a complete list of Mazzinghi's works. This [The Captive to his Bird??] is listed as apparently for single voice (others are labelled "three voices", etc., and presumably for piano, since there is a section below this work labelled "The harp:".

Say rather comprehensive. I'm sure that someone with access to his manuscripts and/or a time machine can (sometimes) turn up things that the author of the article missed, so "complete" is a word one often wants to try to avoid in its most literal sense. But it does look like a very well-filled list. Will link to it from the category page.
