Edition notes: Transposed up a fourth, in high clefs for SSAA, to match service book pitch of the cantus firmus, and also to match Sarum rubrics for polyphony to be sung by Trebles. Plainsong verse included in this edition. Original note values retained, except for breaking the longs into two breves across barlines. Ficta included above the staff. ERRATA: Part names "Contratenor" and "Medius" should be switched with each other on p. 1 of this edition.
