RISM has several entries for this work, only one of which is an autograph manuscript. This page is tagged for the instrumentation in that entry ("S, A, B, vl (2), vla, vlc, bc"), since copyists sometimes alter instrumentations to suit their own specific performance circumstances. There is one discrepancy in this entry, in that the Scoring Summary at the top lists a chorus, while the specific Scoring at the bottom does not list the chorus. Tagging is therefore subject to correction, and hopefully at some point, a scan of the autograph manuscript will be uploaded.
