The composer added a piccolo (i.e., a 3rd flutist) to the Resurrexit and then deleted it, though Bärenreiter includes the part as an option. Berlioz vacillated among serpent, buccin, and ophicleide for the lowest member of the brass family: one mvt calls for buccin and serp, while another calls for buccin or oph, and yet another for serp alone. In any case it can be covered by one player on a modern tuba (high tessitura).
