According to the uploader, this is "the first movement (a chorus) of a Cantata. I couldn't find a reference to the complete cantata". Thus, the instrumentation cannot be confirmed as yet. The full cantata may be in Hennenburg's "Das Kantatenschaffen von Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel", so hopefully, someone will be able to post the full instrumentation. The assumption at the moment is that it would be 4 voices + choir, but the page will be tagged for undetermined instrumentation until such time as something can be verified.
