A number of movements from Solomon are on CPDL. Are they all covered, in which case we should mark this request completed, or which ones are still outstanding?

Solomon is a very large oratorio with many movements and is far from being considered complete at ChoralWiki: there are just a handful of choruses represented and none of the many arias. This oratorio is somewhat of a favorite of mine, since many years ago I was the bass aria soloist (and the understudy for the Solomon role) in a performance by the Oratorio Society of Charlottesville-Albemarle (Virginia), with instrumentalists largely imported from Juilliard.
