    Your post is unclear. Why can’t you perform what you know? It will fit with the orchestration in exactly the same way. The original score only gives the melody and bass, which is only the bare bones. One does not only play those lines, you are expected to complete the harmonies according to the figured bass, and add something to that as well in baroque practice. Only a competition could specify a particular edition, seems to me.
