Honegger, King David instrumentation


Thanks to all who answered my query regarding instrumentation for KING DAVID.

The "small" (original) instrumentation for Honegger's KING DAVID is:
2 flutes (one doubling piccolo)
1 oboe (doubling English Horn)
2 clarinets (one doubling bass clarinet)
2 trumpets
1 French Horn
1 Bassoon
1 Trombone
string bass
percussion (cymbales, tambour, grosse caisse, gong, tambourine)

Ravel later reorchestrated the piece for full orchestra.

Is there any published edition of Honegger's King David full score available? (Preferably the original version)
Thank you for any information
