Misc. Comments

  • According to Grove Music, the recits and choruses for this were unpublished.
  • Based on the Grove comment, it is assumed there is a chorus in this work, although sometimes vocal numbers involving all the soloists are called "chorus" and there is no separate chorus.
  • The orchestra for the full work may have involved more instruments than is in the overture.
