(note: will attempt to figure out instrumentation from score but this is difficult from 231 pages of manuscript and will take some time :) - Schissel . Unrecorded, apparently. I think this is a set of intermezzi (intermedes- it says as much here and in a description in a book) for soloists, chorus and orchestra rather than an opera. Also, according to BT, attribution to Beck not certain. (pity; he deserves representation here I say... if not with this, with something... well, perhaps something can be found.)-Schissel
