The full score published in 1987 - 583 pages - "reproduces a ms. in the Biblioteca do Palacio Nacional de Ajuda, Lisbon, Portugal (44--II--40--42)." Some vocal excerpts were published in Paris "Chez Mr De Roulledle De la Chevardière" ca.1785.

(The above may be the complete full score, depending on the length of Warburton's preface- if the latter is 50-odd pages, then what we have is not selections but the full score.)
