I can see that the "one complete work" could be my 1700's nightmare. So, I am accepting the Bach cello suites.
I accept any decision by the master of the game. However, to my best understanding, it matches the intent of most composers between 1700 and 1800 if something like "the well-tempered Clavier", "Six Concerti Grossi op. 3" (Händel) oder "Three Piano Trios op. 1" (Beethoven) is regarded as a single work.

Of course we can discuss whether in Beethoven's op. 31 there is the trias in the foreground or whether this is a time where the singleton works are bundled by force into a single opus, but before 1800 there is not much space for discussion to my opinion.

Within a group of several works the composers showed their bandwidth. It was not about presenting the one and only masterwork (which is an attitude from the 19th century), it was about offering a bunch to the honourable customers. Picking single parts out of such cycle is less than the "work of the 1700s" imho.

Just my 5 cts, sorry ... as pointed out in the beginning: I accept any decision by the master of the game.

Corelli, Arcangelo: Violin Sonatas op. 5 (1700)
Zelenka, Jan Dismas: Trio Sonatas ZWV 181 (1721)
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadé: Le Nozze di Figaro (1785/86)
