This was posted on YT back on New Year's day, and I don't think I've seen it shared here on jdz:

Not too shabby, but I wish I could hear the rest!

My wish has been granted. Here's the full piece, side by side with a smashing performance of ZWV 68 Dixit, and Vivaldi's Nisi Dominus with the wonderful Lucile Richardot singing:

ZWV 154 @ 37:40 . It starts with a rising layered/suspended vocal pattern almost exactly similar to the first Capriccio. This is contrasted with little sighing orchestral sections akin to Missa Nativitatis Domini ZWV8. Then it morphs into traditional a colle voce fugue. A very well crafted and uplifting first movement, followed by the rest of the work which I won't spoil, because I'm still chewing over it as much as I can :)
