Tony and Dan, thank you for the additional insights.

Oh rats. That question has turned the passage into an earworm that's going
to drive me crazy until someone answers the question. I think Mozart
borrowed the melody line there from one of his own operas. I can't place
it, but I'm hearing the melody in my head as a fairly thin orchestral
accompaniment (a few stringed instruments, not the whole gang) for a duet
between a soprano and a tenor where, right after that passage, the full
orchestra and the chorus join in. Or I could be totally wrong and I should
probably just shut up now....
