SSSAAATTTBBB (SSATB soli), 2 violin, 2 viola, 2 oboe, trumpet in C, bass continuo, keyboard
Large-scale concert setting of the Vesper Psalm Dixit Dominus for SSSAAATTTBBB, strings, woodwind, trumpet and keyboard. From an 18th-century Dresden manuscript on Venetian paper in an Italian hand, a large-scale setting of the Vesper Psalm. The work has two solo arias, one for soprano and one for alto; but also specifies other soli ensembles, with up to three of each vocal type. There are also SSATB soli ensembles within choruses, though these could be performed by a semi-chorus or merely by contrasting dynamics.
