Misc. Comments

RISM has 3 entries for this work, none of which are an autograph manuscript. Two have no scoring, and one of these indicates choral movements, but the other does not. The next has 4 solo voices with orchestra (no chorus listed). For now, this page will be tagged for voices generically (no number), mixed chorus, orchestra. However, this is subject to correction, and hopefully at some point an autograph manuscript will be available so corrections can be made.
