"Accomodata, che sopra il Basso sequente si può variare un'istesso Concerto in sei modi, con una & dui parti cosi voci, come stromenti"
Under the table of contents, the alternate instrumentations are given, as follows [the continuo is assumed for all of these]:

The concerti in 2 equal parts can be varied in 6 ways:
  1. 2 soprano voices
  2. 2 violins or cornetts
  3. 1 soprano voice, the other violin
  4. 1 soprano solo, the other as you please
  5. 1 tenor solo, the other as you please
  6. 2 tenors an octave lower

The concerti in 2 unequal parts can be varied in 6 ways:

  2. trombone and violin instruments
  3. bass voice solo [leave the 2nd part out]
  4. soprano voice solo [leave the 2nd part out]
