Edited and edited by Wolfgang G. Haas
The work is in five movements:

La Paix: Largo alla siciliana
La Réjouissance: Allegro
Menuets I and II
Minuet I is consciously behaved and appears in D minor.
Minuet II, on the other hand, is in D major, and therefore also much more majestic. It was played three times.
The arrangement also contains the minor movements for trumpet. The D major movements can also be performed with a natural trumpet en D.
