A proficient musician, Caldara then reduced the scoring for use in the church. On the title page of the manuscript one finds mentions of many performances from the year 1750, thus after Caldara's death. This version seems to have been quite popular among Viennese church musicians - an excellent reason to publish this first edition and make the work accessible to trumpet ensembles in a version for four trumpets, timpani and piano.
