Thanks, Pabmusic, for spotting the contrabassoon in the manuscript, and to Radegund for ploughing nobly through the score and spotting the phalanx of trumpets. The manuscript was not an easy read late at night. But why introduce a dozen trumpets for the closing bars? Could they have been the ceremonial trumpets (2 lots of six) adding 'welly' on the dominant pedal?
