How much of it did you check out? It's real long. I started skimming though it but didn't get very far.
"This dissertation examines Vivaldi’s use of the viola as a flexible orchestra

I honestly thought that every composer used the viola, as well as the other instruments, to achieve this.
Interesting find Barry.
