RISM has 6 entries for this work, none of which are an autograph manuscript, and 2 of which are only for excerpts. Of the remaining 4, 2 indicate strings only, and 2 indicate orchestra. However, Young's edition indicates that winds double the 2 violin parts, and the lower instrument double the basso part. So the only specified parts are the 2 violins. For the voicings, 3 of the entries mention SSB and one mentions STB. 2 mention a chorus, and 2 don't mention chorus. Therefore 2 tags have been given: 2 sopranos, bass, 2 violins, bc, and the same tag with chorus added. This is subject to correction if an autograph manuscript is ever found.
